It’s a goal which already divides opinion.

The Blues clearly disagree.

Now the key moment on six minutes has attracted yet more debate – namely, who scored it.

Official records from the game show that home defender Greaves has been credited with the effort, with the dubious goals committee swiftly making their minds up that he had the telling last touch.

However, it’s not a verdict which Blues defender Sean Raggett – a key contributor to the opener – agrees with.

He believes he got a decisive toe to the ball as he attacked Cam Pring’s cross into the box from a corner-kick.

And it’s an opinion shared by former Crystal Palace and Birmingham striker Clinton Morrison.

Raggett, who has three goals to his name this season, tweeted: How has this been taken away from me (man face-palming emoji inserted) unreal performance from the boys today.

Meanwhile, Morrison, who scored more than 150 goals during his career, said it was an effort he would definitely be claiming.

Speaking on Sky Sports, the former Republic of Ireland international said: ‘It (the goal) could be a Ragget one.

‘He gets a slight touch to it and it spins off Greaves.

‘So I’m going to give that one to Raggett because his shot might have been going on target – I definitely would have been claiming that.’
