Birmingham bowed out of the Europa League despite Adam Rooney's goal earning a 1-0 victory over NK Maribor in their final group encounter at St. Andrew's.

Club Brugge and visiting Braga went through to the last 32 after their 1-1 draw in Belgium and they finished one point ahead of Chris Hughton's side in group H.

It was a brave effort by Blues for whom Rooney settled the encounter with a first half header - his first goal for four months - from a cross by Nathan Redmond.
