Birmingham City face Championship worst travellers, Rotherham United, at St Andrew’s Stadium today.
Wayne Rooney and his side will look to put the disappointment of Wednesday’s defeat to Blackburn Rovers behind them by inflicting more pain on the manager-less Millers. The Blues’ away record is dismal, but their five wins, three draws and one loss from nine games at St Andrew’s puts them among the best home teams in the Championship.
Rotherham were beaten by Hull City in midweek and are currently in 23rd place. Although the Blues are in poor form, they still lead Rotherham by 10 points.
A win against the Millers – who are yet to win on the road this season – would go some way to placating fans who have become increasingly concerned about the team’s sudden decline in the table.
