Assuming Jacques Maghoma is declared for for tomorrow’s derby, Steve Cotterill has a decision to make.

Since Maghoma’s injury, Jota has thrust himself into the limelight with some eye catching performances.

His two goals against Sheffield Wednesday helped Blues to a vital win. And his half time introduction during the FA Cup replay in midweek seemed to liven Blues up.

The Spaniard, however, doesn’t offer as much to the team from a defensive point of view.

Maghoma, who perhaps isn’t as technically gifted as record signing Jota, undoubtedly gives Blues more of a competitive edge with his work rate and willingness to press high up the pitch.

The question for Cotterill is – brains or braun?

Blues fans – what do you think?

  • Blues must go for goalscorers for this one ROB . If villa score we have to pull a goal back quickly or if we score first we must try to pull away . Not sit back …..poachers in the box blues .get it in there.

  • Maghoma every time if fit. Jota is a good option off the bench but lacks the energy and industry of Maghoma. Boga, Davis, Maghoma, Gallagher is a high energy front 4. Extra incentive added for the vile as a win would take them second.

  • It matters little whether it?s Jota or Maghoma.It all depends on how WE play collectively.Man for man Villa are a better side and should have that advantage but gritty blues of old is what I am looking for.Work our socks off with Horsfield/Savage enthusiasm and anything could happen.
