Yet another match-winning performance from Lukas Jutkiewicz who popped up at the right time to clinch a third successive victory on home soil.

Reaching a milestone of 50 league goals for Blues, Lee Bowyer was full of praise for his number 10 as he spoke to

“I’m pleased for him as he works so hard up there as well. Taking his goals aside you can see how hard he works. He does not stop, and he fights for every ball. I think that this club suits him.

“The way he plays he is a winner and a fighter. He’s a pleasure to work with and such a nice lad off the field. I love the aggression that he brings onto the field, that’s how he scores his goals. He’s so difficult to mark and physically so strong. He’s playing with a smile on his face and that’s great for me to see.”

“Look at the first goal, what a header. A great cross from [Marc] Robbo, the delivery was perfect, but he’s still got to score it and that was some header. Sometimes they are the difference between winning and losing games – today he was the difference.”

Blues now face relegation-threatened Rotherham next Sunday in a bid to confirm Championship safety for good. One thing is for sure, it’s happy to be a Blue once again!
