Tyler Roberts is determined to silence his critics and demonstrate his worth after a challenging start to his Birmingham City career plagued by injuries. Signed from Leeds United last summer on a promising four-year contract, Roberts endured a setback by missing the first four months of the season due to injury. This setback was reminiscent of his injury struggles in the previous campaign, where he featured sparingly in just eight matches throughout 2023.

Following his return to fitness towards the end of Wayne Rooney’s tenure as manager, Roberts faced difficulties in regaining form and securing a regular spot in the team amidst the tumultuous season at Birmingham City. Despite starting in Gary Rowett’s debut game against his former club QPR, Roberts found himself on the bench for the subsequent three matches.

However, Rowett reinstated Roberts to the starting lineup against Coventry City, a decision that paid dividends as the Welsh international played a pivotal role in securing a convincing 3-0 victory for Blues. Reflecting on his performance, Roberts expressed his determination to prove his detractors wrong.

“I have a point to prove,” Roberts asserted in an interview with Blues TV. “I’m somebody that is always working hard, trying to get consistency, and that’s what I’ve struggled with over the past couple of years. It was a big day for me personally, coming in and proving to doubters and people who maybe don’t believe in me as much that I can play and I can give something to the team.”

Recalling his previous start at St Andrew’s against Sunderland in February, Roberts emphasized the significance of playing in front of a passionate and supportive crowd. He acknowledged the fans’ desire for intensity and passion, sentiments that he and his teammates are committed to delivering on the pitch.

Roberts’ determination to overcome adversity and make an impact at Birmingham City underscores his resilience and drive to succeed despite the challenges he has faced. With his recent performance signaling a potential resurgence, Roberts is poised to play an instrumental role in the team’s endeavors moving forward.
