Wolverhampton Wanderers fans have mocked Birmingham City boss Steve Cotterill for his post match comments, following their 1-0 victory at St. Andrews last night.

Wolves edged past their Midlands rivals yesterday, to strengthen their grip on top spot in the Championship.

But Birmingham boss Cotterill was not exactly the most complementary about Wolves after the match.

Cotterill stated that Wolves had been average, and if goal line technology hadn’t been in place, then his side may have got a point.

“I’ve seen Wolves take teams apart this season, they didn’t do that,” he said. “I thought Wolves were average tonight. “Their front three are full of goals, our lads find it difficult to score. Without goal line technology, we might have got away with that tonight.”

Cotterill’s comments have opened himself up to criticism from Wolves fans, who could not believe the Blues boss’s excuses.

Wolves scored their goal against Birmingham through Leo Bonatini, in what was an ill tempered affair.

Birmingham had Harlee Dean sent off towards the end, as they struggled to get back into the match.

Wolves’ performance levels actually dropped in the second half of the contest, but Birmingham failed to break them down.

Birmingham have now dropped back into the relegation zone, while Wolves have built up a 10 point cushion inside the automatic promotion places.
