Player to Watch: Jay Stansfield

Stansfield was one of the worst players on the field in Birmingham's latest loss earlier in the week to Middlesbrough, but the 21-year-old striker is still the best scorer the team has with nine goals to his name. He appeared in 34 matches this campaign.

Stansfield is currently on loan to Birmingham from Fulham and he will return to the London club at the end of May. He was raised at Fulham's academy but failed to get a proper chance in the first team. However, it seems, he has taken advantage of his opportunity at Birmingham.
