Having not won since Leeds away, Blues were desperate for their first home win of the season. Blues, who were unbeaten in 7, wanted to turn those draws into wins.
The start of the game was a good one for Blues as striker Che Adams nearly squeezed the ball into the bottom right corner in the 3rd minute of the game. Blues looked likely to score soon.
In the 6th minute, Blues had a free kick on the edge of the eighteen yard box; Gary Gardner stepped up to take it but sent the ball sailing into the away fans.
However, in the 20th minute, Jota whipped in a deep corner which found the head of Lukas Jutkiewicz who sent the ball into the top left corner of the net. A perfect start for Blues.
It got even better for Blues and Lukas when Gary Gardner’s shot fell to Jutkiewicz who tapped home from 6 yards in the 22nd minute.
In the 37th minute, Lee Camp denied Manning a goal when he comfortably tipped the ball over the crossbar.
22 minutes after the break, Blues won a free kick and let our number 10 have the ball to seal the win. Lukas Jutkiewicz drilled the ball into the bottom corner-the goalkeeper had no chance.
Rotherham did get one back through Taylor, but it was not enough to stop Blues strolling to their first home win of the season.
