A weird game ends in a 3-1 home victory for Blues thanks to a Jutkiewicz hat-trick.

Why weird? There was almost nothing to the game from the start to the finish. Blues weren’t their stellar, energetic selves. We weren’t incisive but we weren’t bad. We just beat what was in front of us and that was a very poor Rotherham side.

It was almost a carbon copy of the 4-2 win against the same opponents a couple of seasons ago. We simply won the game.

Juke obviously comes out with the credit for his first professional hat-trick. He isn’t the easiest on the eye but his importance to this team is unquestionable and the entire stadium was clearly overjoyed to see him wheel away after his third.

Otherwise, nobody really stood out and nobody played poorly. Morrison and Dean had an interesting battle with Michael Smith who proved difficult to handle. It was also good to see Bez Lubala get a little bit of game time.

A second win of the season and a first at home. The longest unbeaten run in the Championship continues.

  • Adams and Maghoma had shockers really, Mahoney looks a class act and surely must play from the start next game and I would start Soloman Otabar in place of Adams who looks overweight and short of his former pace

  • It’s time for me, after constantly criticising Juke on his lack of goals, to admit that he is playing really well this season, I doubt it was because he read my comments but finally he looks like the threat we need to lead the line. I hope he continues to put it to the rival defences and I’m glad he has made me eat my words…. KRO

  • What is really important now is for the EFL to disclose whether or not we are going to be docked points.October is a critical month for the club with TTA ending its two year exclusivities period.With other Championship clubs spending far more than ourselves including Villa, we do appear to be being unfairly singled out. However,on the bright side,I understand from the legal side,that the club is prepared to robustly defend any unjust punishment in the way of points deduction.Garry Monk must be informed before too long of the extent of our fate in order to realise a safety position that we may need come next May.

  • THE CITY AND CLUB AND FANS HAVE SUFFERED ENOUGH AT THE HANDS OF THE E.F.L.s OVER RECENT YEARS ..THE DESTROYING OF CLUBS OR DISCRIMINATION BETWEEN E.F.L. AND PREM CLUBS MUST NOT BE ALLOWED …THIS IS A DEMOCRATIC COUNTRY AND MUST REMAIN SO UNTIL VOTERS ELECT DIFFERENT ,
