Wolverhampton Wanderers fans confident of bouncing back from Birmingham City defeat

Wolverhampton Wanderers will be looking to bounce back from the defeat to Birmingham City with victory over Middlesbrough in the Championship.

Wolverhampton Wanderers suffered a blow in their quest to finish in the top six of the Championship on Saturday.

Kenny Jackett’s side headed into the game against Birmingham City at St. Andrew’s on the back of a 4-3 victory over Leeds United at home.

The Wanderers had won four games in a row in the Championship and were expected to pick up all three points in Birmingham, but they failed to do so.

Former Arsenal prospect Benik Afobe put the visiting Wolves in the lead in the 21st minute, but Birmingham restored parity through defender Rob Kiernan in the 25th minute.

Then just past the hour mark, Demarai Gray scored his first goal of 2015 as Birmingham won the West Midlands derby 2-1.

The result leaves Wolves eighth in the Championship table with 71 points from 42 matches, level on points with sixth-placed Ipswich Town.

The Wanderers are back in league action on Tuesday when they take on Middlesbrough away from home at the Riverside Stadium.

Middlesbrough are currently fourth in the championship and are chasing automatic promotion to the Premier League, but the Wolves fans seem confident of winning against them.
