Points were shared at St Andrews’ on Saturday afternoon as Gary Rowett’s return to Birmingham City saw current club Millwall earn a point.

Shaun Williams had given the visitors the lead, but a late Jake Clarke-Salter header was good enough to rescue a point for the home side.

The point did not really do anything for either side, with Millwall dropping down to 13th and Birmingham City remaining 15th in the table.

Discussing his visit to his former club, Gary Rowett seemed a bit disappointed to only come away with a point.

As quoted by BBC Sport, the Millwall manager said: “I wouldn’t say I was pleased. The first half was very good. We were by far the better side, and we created a lot of chances.”

“When we counter-attacked, we did it well. Our shape was good, we negated a lot. We had a great chance with Matt Smith which would normally be a tap-in for him but it was a great save from Connal Trueman.

“In the second half we ran out of steam a bit, and ran out of composure.”

Birmingham manager Pep Clotet was full of praise for his players for coming from behind to secure a point.

He said: “I want to praise the side for coming back into a very difficult game and remind the players that Millwall went ahead against Swansea and it was impossible for Swansea to get back into the game.

“We want to remind ourselves of how we can do better, how can we can create more chances and how we can take more chances.”

We were unlucky that the referee could not see two clear penalties in my opinion. That would have changed the game but we don’t use that as an excuse.”
