Birmingham goalkeeper David Stockdale has apologised for his performance in the 5-0 defeat at Brentford on Tuesday.
He spilled an Ollie Watkins shot into his net to hand Brentford the lead, with manager Steve Cotterill insisting "on any other God-given day he will save that" after the match.
Stockdale was then caught in possession and out of his net for a Neal Maupay goal in the second half, with Cotterill left to lament a team performance "littered with errors".
The Birmingham keeper, signed from Brighton by Harry Redknapp last summer, took ownership of his mistakes on Twitter.
"I'd like to apologise for my performance last night to all at BCFC," he said. "Fans/players/staff.
"I'm always honest and give my all and that wasn't good enough from me. I thank all the fans for continued support."
The defeat was Birmingham's third in a row and leaves them just a point above the relegation zone.
