Marc Roberts hasn’t lived up to expectations since his arrival at the club, but his goal at the weekend was at least one positive for the defender.

His equalising goal in the first half against the Blades helped us get a crucial three points. However, our no.4 is well aware he needs to do a lot more to justify his £3.5m price tag. He was quoted by the Birmingham Mail as saying:

“It’s been an up and down season for myself. I have not hit the heights I have in the past years or what I would like to have done coming here. I am disappointed in myself for that.”

“I have sat out of the team and watched the team do ever so well. It’s a bit late I know but the chance I have got now I need to show the fans what I am as a player.”

On Twitter, fans were happy that the 27-year-old has finally begun to show some good form:

Verdict:

Roberts’s goal certainly helped the team geta a vital win, and that has to be commended. Yet, his form this season has been a massive disappointment, and he has freely admitted himself that things haven’t been good enough.

The centre-back has suffered from a crisis of confidence, like a lot of his teammates, and he is unrecognisable from the player that performed so well for Barnsley.

Whether he can fully recover his form, we will have to see. If we stay up, and Garry Monk remains in charge, I’m sure we’ll see a much better player next campaign.
