[Archived] News Article -> 2012/13 Half-Time: Birmingham City 1 Rovers 0

Recommended Posts

Birmingham lead at the break after a rather uninspiring first half produced one goal for the home side. Neither team has been particularly good and there has been a severe lack of quality in the attacking halves, but a goal from Morrison has given the home side the lead.

The match got off to a slow start as both sides gave away possession easily and struggled to mount any dangerous attacks. Rovers gradually settled into the match and looked dangerous through King, with Pedersen pushing forward from central midfield to support the attacks, but they were unable to create any real openings. Rhodes had their best chance of the half when he intercepted a poor backpass, but Butland did well to come out and get a hand to the ball.

Birmingham slowly found their stride and had a number of half-chances through Zigic, Redmond and Burke, but were mainly limited to efforts from long range. As the half wore on Birmingham began to find some joy on the wings and took the lead when Morrison was able to cut inside and easily make his way into the box before firing a left-footed effort past Sandomierski.

As things stand Rovers look certain to stay up, but a win could move them up several places and Bowyer and his side will be hoping for an improved performance in the second half.
