Rudd blun­der opens door for Birm­ing­ham

Sunday Independent (Ireland) - Sport - - SOCCER -

PRE­STON goal­keeper De­clan Rudd helped to hand Birm­ing­ham a 3-0 Cham­pi­onship vic­tory after mak­ing a huge mis­take at St An­drew’s. With no one around him, Rudd com­pletely missed Maikel Kieften­beld’s hope­ful punt into the area and watched in hor­ror as the ball rolled be­tween his legs and into the net to hand Birm­ing­ham a 46th-minute lead.

Jacques Maghoma made the game safe for the Blues with their sec­ond in the 61st minute be­fore Che Adams added a third 13 min­utes from time.
