Wolverhampton Wanderers suffered a 2-1 defeat to Birmingham City away from home in the Championship on Saturday.

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

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

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

Former Arsenal prospect Benik Afobe put the visiting side 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.

Following the match, Afobe, Bakary Sako and Jordan Graham took to social networking site Twitter to express their disappointment at the final result.

Kenny Jackett’s side are back in Championship action on Tuesday when they take on Middlesbrough away from home at the Riverside Stadium.
