Birmingham this season are looking like the kings of draws. The team simply cannot kill its games off and ends up losing points. Sure the team showed spirit and came from behind to level the score in some games, but overall they are far too inconsistent. The Blues can surprise everyone and bang 2 goals in 10 minutes in the first half just to play terrible in the second and concede 2 goals to finish the game as a draw.

Midweek could be considered a good result as Birmingham managed to draw on the road against ambitious Brentford. And yet again Birmingham took the lead through Morrison just to concede an equalizer minutes before half time.

Rotherham finds itself where most people would have guessed – in the relegation battle. They have equal points with their current opponents Birmingham and will be looking to avoid defeat at all costs. The main weakness of this team looks to be up front with lack of goals.

Midweek the Millers finished in a goalless draw against visiting Bristol City side. They were probably the side that wanted the goal more but could not finish off their chances.

Birmingham vs Rotherham: Head-to-head

  • Birmingham have incredible 5 draws from 5 games at home this season
  • Overall Birmingham is unbeaten in 7 games but only 1 of those games was a victory
  • Birmingham haven’t kept a clean sheet at home against Rotherham in 4 games conceding 7 goals
  • Birmingham have 2 victories, 1 draw and 1 defeat against Rotherham at home
  • Rotherham are winless in 4 games
  • Rotherham has nothing but losses since the start of the season away from home

Birmingham vs Rotherham: Predictions

This is a very important game for both sides. There will be some nerves and the team will be cautious. There shouldn’t be many goals unless something major happens early – red card or goal. In terms of final outcome Birmingham are looking like favourites as the Millers are simply atrocious away from home.
