Rooney's Birmingham held at home by Rotherham

Published on: 02 December 2023

Rotherham and Birmingham were restricted to four on-target efforts each at St Andrew's

Wayne Rooney's Birmingham City failed to win again in front of their own fans - and new co-owner Tom Brady - as they were held to a goalless draw at home by Wayne Carlisle's Rotherham United.

The War of the Waynes proved anything but box-office entertainment in a game of very few chances.

Up against a team still under the caretaker management of Carlisle, following the sacking of Matt Taylor, Rooney has now won just one of his eight games in charge.

Blues now lie 15th, 10 points clear of 23rd-placed strugglers Rotherham.
