FUMING Birmingham fans lobbed TENNIS BALLS onto the pitch in protest against the club’s owners.
The Blues welcomed Luton Town to St Andrew’s for the Championship clash on Saturday.
And players and stewards were left with a first-half clean-up job as supporters lobbed tennis balls from the stands.
The Birmingham faithful have been staging angry protests against the club’s parent company – the Hong Kong-based Birmingham Sports Holdings Ltd (BSHL).
BSHL is controlled by businessman Paul Suen via a network of companies registered in the British Virgin Islands.
Furious Blues fans last month set off flares outside St Andrew’s during a huge protest ahead of their 2-1 victory over Barnsley.
Blue smoke poured into the Midlands air, while banners were held up against the board.
One huge one was emblazoned ‘mis-management and no trust’, while another read: “Our club has a history of generations.

“Mismanagement is unacceptable, the supporters won;t tolerate it any longer.
“BSHL it’s time to sell. You’ve embarrassed the club enough.”
Birmingham fans’ patience has finally snapped after what they claim is five years of stagnation at the club.
Much of St Andrew’s is in a state of disrepair and closed off to them, while Lee Bowyer’s squad also continues to crumble.
The Blues currently sit 17th in the Championship with just one win in their last five.
