Up next for Birmingham City is a trip to Leicester City in the FA Cup as west Midlands meets east Midlands in the fifth round of the competition.
It should, therefore, be a feisty affair and Leicester will go into it as favourites given their current league standing in the top flight but, similarly, the Blues will fancy a pop at pulling off a surprise result.
Indeed, the Blues are on the longest unbeaten run of anyone in the professional game after Liverpool lost to Watford at the weekend and they’ll be up for keeping that going against the Foxes.
In the meantime, though, the youngsters were also involved in action last night as the u23s took to the pitch and, among their squad, was a more senior face:

Mulumbu has been training with the Blues’ squad in recent weeks and looks to be in the fold with the club at the moment, though it remains to be seen what the plan for him is.
Even so, Blues fans have reacted to this news on Twitter so let’s take a look at the best of what has been said on social media:
Great young talent

No point moaning and/or judging, don't say anything til he has played – if he even plays. Some didn't think Scotty would input much…..

I would say to people remember Stephen Carr before criticising. If Pep thinks we need him until end of season fine!
