First half Holmes was trying to turn between players, take the ball in to space and was always making himself available in all areas of the pitch. Difference in the second half was when he turned into space other players were making runs off the ball in space for him.
Bogle in particular was playing 10 yards further forward and offering an outlet which holmes used with great effect.
Lawrence also got into more advanced positions and found pockets of space in the final third.
Birmingham are no mugs and when they for their goal got back into shape and pressed our fullbacks so they couldn't get on the half turn, fozzie was getting pressed by jota everytime he had the ball and was forced back inside and square quite often.
Second half he looked in the gaps over the fullback and inside to Holmes who was easily the best player on the pitch for impact with the ball.
Huddlestone could have played in his match suit and not got it dirty. Calm and assured in possession and vital in taking the pressure off Keogh and Davies bringing the ball out from the back. He is world class at taking the ball under pressure, bringing their press out of midfield and then bang and little flick round the corner or a quick one two and he can take 3 or 4 players out of the game.
Birmingham made it very hard for us and we could easily have felt sorry for ourselves, but kept playing, trusted our ability and for the rewards.
