Disappointing afternoon leaves reds feeling blue

After the party, the hangover. Saints' restored hopes of survival were offered a significant wake-up call this afternoon, other results leaving them entrenched in the bottom three as they slumped to defeat at St. Andrews by a single goal.

Birmingham 1 - Saints 0

Saints' amazing run of late had to end at some point, but the manner of the Blues' win will leave them feeling some regret that they could not salvage a point. The only goal came in stoppage time at the end of the first half during a tepid affair in which Saints failed to create the chances that have characterised their recent performances. Wins for Derby, Blackpool and Watford add a further shade of grey to a poor afternoon and mean it is now even more crucial Saints pick up at least four points in their upcoming brace of home games if they are to stay in touch.

Would you be in favour of a return for Rupert?
