I suppose the best way you can describe this as the silver lining in a dark cloud.
Birmingham City’s poor run of form continued, as they were defeated at St Andrew’s 3-2 by Wigan Athletic. The Blues fell behind inside the first ten minutes through a Josh Windass strike, but it’s the man who got the equaliser for the Blues that is the main subject of this article.
Having been frozen out of the squad for large parts of the season, there’s arguably no better way to show that you have something to give to the squad than by firing into the back of the net when you’re given the chance. So when he managed to get on the scoresheet yesterday, Blues fans swarmed to social media to show their support for the Swedish forward.

Mrabti simply has to be the first name in the #bcfc line-up going forward. Guy has so much quality and puts in so much effort, it's mental he was frozen out for so long

Brilliant from Kerim Mrabti that is. Lovely touch and finish. Needs to be used a hell of a lot more than he has been… #bcfc

Should Mrabti be a regular in the first-team?
Question is, did he do enough in this game to convince Pep Clotet to keep him in the first-team going forward?
