Football Scores

Lee Bowyer and his Birmingham side continued their good run of form with one of the comfortable football scores in the Championship by beating Derby County 2-0. Scott Hogan opened the scoring for the Blues after a defensive mixup for Derby at the back. Jeremie Bala then sealed victory for the hosts in the 81st minute with a powerful finish.

Troy Deeney made his second debut for Birmingham when he came on midway through the second half. Deeney joined from Watford last month and came on to a wonderful response from the home fans. Birmingham has moved up to fourth with the win while Derby County remains perilously close to the relegation zone in 16th.

Managers Reaction

Birmingham’s Lee Bowyer: “It was very satisfying to get our first three points at home in front of the fans. [We kept] a clean sheet, created chances, worked extremely hard as a group – it was very pleasing.” he added. “We had to adjust the press slightly after the first few minutes and once we adjusted then we won it in some dangerous areas a lot of times in the first half and should have punished them more, I felt. I thought that we were very good.”

Derby’s Wayne Rooney: “It was frustrating, really. We played some OK stuff, but we didn’t really create that many clear-cut chances.” he added. “On the other hand, I don’t think Birmingham did enough to win the game – we gave the ball away twice for their two goals. We weren’t at our best tonight and didn’t deserve to win.”
