I think both the players and the fans have turned it round and have been able to bring some positive vibes into the ground.

Jacques Maghoma has paid tribute to the Blues supporters for their part in helping the side to a vital victory against Sheffield United.

Blues fell behind after just seven minutes in Saturday's clash at St. Andrew's when former Blues winger Mark Duffy netted for the Blades.

Despite this early the setback the fans continued to get behind their side and give superb vocal backing,

And Blues fought back to claim a 2-1 win thanks to Marc Robert's debut goal for the Club just after the half-hour mark, and Maghoma's late solo effort.

"We went a goal behind early on, but we believe in ourselves and we kept going and we got our reward in the end," said DR Congo international Maghoma.

"Even when we were behind against Sheffield there was massive support.

"When we've gone behind or not been playing well you can always hear the fans urging us on and that's a big plus for us players out on the pitch.

"I think both the players and the fans have turned it round and have been able to bring some positive vibes into the ground.

"The result meant so much for us and the Club and hopefully next weekend we can go on and do something as well.

Regarding his winning strike, Maghoma continued: "It was an unbelievable ball (from Che Adams).

"I didn't even have to look. I just ran, and he put it right in my path and I just took it.

"We've been doing quite a bit of one v ones in training, so it was good to get that opportunity and to slot it home was amazing.

"But it was a collective effort and a collective win.

"Hopefully this can carry on for the remainder of the games and it will see us over the line."
