Andy Munro watched Blues draw with Millwall.
I’m not sure whether this game could be described as dire or dour but, in all truth, it was a bit of both.
Typically Millwall and typically a Gary Rowett side, they worked hard to close down a rather tired looking Blues whilst trying to catch us on the break.
They nearly did the latter but on the only occasion that they broke through, they were thwarted by the ever dependable John Ruddy.
Highlights were few and far between although Blues did have their moments with the ball fizzing across the Millwall six yard box. Tahith Chong had probably his least effective game and one wonders if he’s better playing ‘in the hole’ rather than being tied into a midfield three.
Up top, Troy Deeney did well in the air and worked hard but never looked likely to make a breakthrough and neither did the hardworking Scott Hogan.
Probably the star man offensively was Longelo who never tired of making his runs down the wing often shepherded by two opposition players.
Juninhon Bacuna came on and oozed class, which timed in with a more dangerous Blues in the closing stages and he must surely start next time around.
Last season we would probably have lost this game so it’s another small step on our improvement and road to recovery.
