Wolves loanee Dion Sanderson again started at the heart of the Birmingham defence as they travelled to face Huddersfield last night.
Lee Bowyer’s side got a 0-0 draw in Yorkshire, with Sanderson helping them keep a clean sheet.
Bowyer told the club website that Sanderson played ‘really well’ on the night.
The Birmingham Mail agreed with Bowyer’s assessment, making him the Blues’ man of the match in their player ratings.
They gave him an 8/10 rating and wrote: “Quick, powerful and decisive, the Wolves loanee was an assertive presence in the back three.
“Produced an important block late on and easily Blues’ best player.”
As per WhoScored, Sanderson made two clearances, two interceptions and a block. He also won four headers.
His performance earned plenty of praise from Birmingham fans on Twitter after the game.
Here is how his man of the match performance went down after a result which leaves Birmingham 19th in the Championship…
That has to be one of the worst performances and least chances we’ve created yet come away with a point 🤪. McGree & Sanderson positives from that. Chongs touch let him down a few times on break tonight #KRO— Steve P (@sjp3084nod) October 20, 2021
Sanderson MOTM.— James Jeavons (@jeavons24) October 20, 2021
Friend, Pedersen, Graham and McGree all positives.
We really have to start going for it more though. 😩#KRO
