Whilst Lee Camp might have stolen the majority of the headlines, there were some more minor stories taking place against Coventry City.

Not only did you have Jack Concannon making his professional debut, but Caolan Boyd-Munce made only his second appearance for the club, and the first since that disastrous night at Fratton Park at the beginning of the season.

Blue boss Pep Clotet was delighted to see both of them on the pitch. Speaking to the club website after the game, he pointed out what a great thing it was to have two youngsters coming through the side:

β€œThat’s one of the very good positives from tonight, the fact that we had Jack Concannon and Caolan Boyd-Munce playing for us for the first time in the FA Cup, in a very competitive game. It shows that we believe in giving the young players a chance, and myself as a coach, I think this is key now for our future.”

But it was Boyd-Munce that was the bigger talking point out of the two on social media after the game, with opinion seemingly split on whether or not he put in a good performance.

Did the Blues get lucky against Coventry?





As Birmingham Live said, he did quite well given the fact he probably wasn’t expecting to come on that early, so perhaps he deserves a little bit of slack all things considered.
