Explained: the bizarre reason why Birmingham City was carrying their kit from home - to Barnsley

Unusually, Birmingham City played in their traditional blue and white kit – away from home today at Barnsley.

Aitor Karanka’s men tended to play either in their red traveling band or with a third green kit – and expected to do so again at Oakwell.

However, during the preparations for the match, Barnsley asked the Blues if they would be ready to wear the kit from home – because one of their players is colorblind.

The Blues agreed, and Barnsley also wore black instead of white shorts to go with their usual red blouses.

The clubs reached the arrangement in the construction until the match.

The Blues came into play needing points in their fight against relegation, and Barnsley are on top of a six-game winning streak.
