Birmingham City have seen their FA Cup run come to an end this week as they lost 1-0 to Leicester City thanks to a late goal in normal time for the Foxes at the King Power Stadium.
The Blues went into the game boasting a strong unbeaten record in all competitions and would have been confident of getting themselves in and amongst their hosts from the get go.
Indeed, they proved themselves more than capable against a side aiming to be in the Champions League for next year and fans will be pleased with that.
Now, the aim will be for the Blues to climb the table as high as possible in the Sky Bet Championship, whilst fans took to Twitter to praise their side for their efforts last night.
Let’s take a look at some of what has been said on social media about the Blues’ showing last night in Leicestershire:

Solid defensively, but never looked like scoring. Certainly no disgrace, though.

Boring game, but tbf that's only because we dealt pretty well against 3rd in the prem. Played some decent football tonight, should be chuffed considering who we were up against
