I guess we can call today’s decision a bit of a landmark moment for Pep Clotet.

Club captain Harlee Dean is set to come back from his three-game suspension against Millwall, and there’s been some discussions about whether or not he’ll be going straight into the team. Indeed the Blues boss said ahead of the game that:

 “The fact he (Dean) is the captain does not guarantee him a spot in the team.”

Will he have the fortitude to keep the captain out of the team for his much younger counterpart, or will he keep with the current setup and make him earn his place back, waiting for someone like Jake Clarke-Salter or Marc Roberts to make a mistake.

That’s how most Birmingham fans think Clotet should handle things. When @Blues_HQ posed the question to fans on social media, they seemed to think that Dean shouldn’t be put into the team straight away.

Should Jake Clarke-Salter be more prominent in the first team?





Now we wait to see what Clotet makes of the whole thing. Roll on 3 o’clock.
