Read some of the messages of praise from some Birmingham City fans for Gardner’s man-of-the-match performance versus Brentford in the tweets below.

What do we think?

Gardner delivered a praise-worthy performance at the weekend versus a strong Brentford side. The midfielder’s impressive stats from Saturday’s game indicate that the 27-year-old played a significant role in his side securing a 1-1 draw versus a team currently sitting 10 places above them in the Championship table

The Blues currently sit nine points away from the Championship play-offs. However, they are currently undefeated in seven straight Championship games. Should Gardner produce more performances in the ilk of Saturday’s, he could potentially still help his side to push for a place in the play-offs as the season comes to its climax.
