Hughton Pleased With Performance Against Blades

Birmingham City boss Chris Hughton was not short of praise for his side after watching them take apart Sheffield United at Bramhall Lane on Saturday.

Adam Rooney hit two in the 4-0 romp with Nathan Redmond and Wade Elliott also getting their names on the score sheet.

The win put Blues into the 5th round of the FA Cup where they will face Chelsea at Stamford Bridge. Not an easy place to go as they have been installed as favourites.

As for Sheffield United, they had their share of chances but it was Birmingham who were the more clinical in front of goal.

Hughton said: 'It was a real good all-round performance. I'm as delighted with the clean-sheet and the performance as I am with the goals.

'We had to weather a bit early in the game. They were certainly a threat but then we got into our rhythm and the timing of our goals was important.

'We're enjoying playing football and that breeds a certain amount of confidence.'
