So, who’s looking forward to doing it all again?
I just wonder if there’s going to be the same clamour for tickets for a game that’s going to take place on a cold midweek in early February.
So the Blues will have to take on the Sky Blues once again at St Andrew’s after a 0-0 draw between the two sides yesterday, in a game that came close to sparking into life on a few occasions but ultimately didn’t amount to much.
And in the aftermath of the game, there seemed to be a lot of questions amongst the Birmingham City faithful about who was to blame for the display, but the consensus seemed to be that it was down to the awful performance of the players. Blues boss Pep Clotet picked a strong side for the occasion, so you can’t blame him for not taking things seriously, something like this falls squarely on the shoulders of the players for not being able to beat a team in a lower division than them.
That was awful. Completely awful. Not attacking intent what so ever.

Absolutely horrendous. Not sure what's more embarrassing, our performance, our form for the last few months or o'hares miss. We need 3 players in before the window closes or I reckon we could be relegated. Dreadful performance

Slow, pedestrian, unfit, we get worse as the game goes on, where is the possession and drive from earlier in the season when we were putting in 20+ shots a game #bcfc

Would you play a full-strength side v Coventry in the replay?
Now the question is, will the team be able to get their act together when they meet again for the replay?
