Sunderland No2 Black grateful for Birmingham fans reception

Sunderland No2 Eric Black was grateful to Birmingham City fans for the reception they received on Saturday.

Black and Steve Bruce were given a rousing reception from the home fans having had a successful tenure in charge of the club before the pair left for Wigan. But the day soon turned sour for the twosome.

"It was great, very nice to go back and get a decent reception - unfortunately it didn't last too long. Whether it's Birmingham or Man United, we go out to win and it didn't happen for us today," he told safc.com after the 2-0 defeat.
