Brum boss Steve Cotterill addressed the media during his pre-match press conference, ahead of his side's clash with Wolves tomorrow night, and took a swipe at his opposite number Nuno Espirito Santo, suggesting that the Portuguese has had it easy at the Molineux, as quoted by the Birmingham Mail.
The Black Country outfit currently sit comfortably at the top of the Championship table, with a one point lead over second placed Cardiff City, whilst Birmingham are in real trouble, firmly entrenched inside the relegation zone.
Form will go out of the window tomorrow night, however, as it always does for big derby games, but most fans and pundits are predicting a comfortable away win.
Cotterill spoke to reporters during his pre-match press conference today, and claimed that Nuno has had an easy ride at Molineux, with the ease in which he has 'plucked' players from his homeland, as quoted by the Birmingham Mail:
"He's recruited for that 3-4-3. It's pretty easy when you know the players you are going to be plucking from Portugal. The system that they’re playing now will be nothing new to any of those players. Obviously if you were the English boys that are in there that have survived the big change around have done very well to adapt to it."
Cotterill's words will surely give Nuno and Wolves even more emphasis to pick up all three points tomorrow, not that they needed any extra motivation.
And the Birmingham boss' choice to aim a thinly-veiled dig at the Portuguese could come back to haunt him at St Andrews tomorrow night.
