Coventry 2 – 0 Birm’ham

Callum O’Hare scored his first goals since April 2022 as Coventry comfortably beat Birmingham 2-0 at the Coventry Building Society Arena on Friday night.

On his second start of the season, the 25-year-old – who was sidelined for 10 months until October by a serious knee injury – rifled in his first after half an hour and shuffled across the box to smash in a second to add the gloss with 13 minutes of the 90 to play.

The result marked Birmingham’s eighth straight league defeat on the road and also Wayne Rooney’s sixth defeat in nine games since replacing John Eustace as Blues boss just shy of two months ago.

They drop to 16th as a result, while Coventry climb to 14th, two points off the top half and five points outside the play-off places ahead of the remainder of the weekend’s action.
