Birmingham City: Fans weren’t happy Pep Clotet brought off Josh McEachran

Birmingham City may have managed to edge out a nervy contest with Reading on Saturday afternoon, however there was one moment that appeared to infuriate fans during the tense affair.

Although the Blues managed to come away with a 3-2 victory and look to build on the progress that Pep Clotet has been making, one of his substitution choices did not appear to go down too well with some of the fanbase on Twitter.

Josh McEachran was the final player to make way with around 20 minutes left to play, with Lukas Jutkiewicz coming on in his place.

However, many of the fans were far from happy to see the midfielder withdrawn with the score still at 2-1, as many of them had stated that they had felt he was the best player on the pitch.

Indeed, a case could have been made for the 26-year-old as he had been defensively solid for Clotet’s side, with WhoScored stating that he had made a total of four tackles and one clearance to help the Blues pick up a vital three points.

Fans questioned the decision the manager made to take him off, with many unconvinced, whilst one even mentioned the Spaniard would always find a way of getting Jutkiewicz on to the pitch.

Here are just some of their reactions…
