Some Birmingham City fans were left pointing the finger at Kristian Pedersen following his performance for the club in their encounter with Queens Park Rangers on Saturday afternoon.
The two sides played out a 2-2 draw at the Kiyan Prince Foundation Stadium, with Scott Hogan coming to the rescue for Pep Clotet’s men when he bagged his second of the day, as the Irishman’s efforts in front of goal extended their current unbeaten run to 13 games – with nine of those games in the Championship (BBC).
However, some fans felt that Pedersen was to blame for the host’s second goal of the match and took to Twitter to lament the Danish left-back for his display out in the middle.
In truth, that moment could be considered to be an ugly blotch on his overall performance, as the Birmingham full-back’s overall performance appeared to be rather solid, according to data collected by WhoScored. The 25-year-old helped out in attack as he contributed with one shot and one key pass, whilst defensively looked like a rock as he won three aerial duels, made five tackles, one interception and one clearance as he was handed a match rating of 6.74.
Nonetheless, fans were far from impressed with the one moment and, as mentioned, used social media to let out their frustrations.
Here are what just some of them had to say about Pedersen…
Was also pedersen’s fault for getting beaten so easily on the wing in the first place for this second goal

That’s why Pedersen isn’t a premier league defender
