Bruce's View: Wolves

Blues completely dominated affairs in the first forty-five minutes and could easily have gone in at the break with a bigger lead than just the Gary McSheffrey goal scored on the half-hour mark.

However, Wolves came back into the game during the second period and stole a point at the death through Jody Craddock.

Bruce, though, was upset with the referee's decision not to have stopped play in the build-up that eventually led to the goal as seconds earlier Seb Larsson had been knocked to the ground by Gary Breen.

"They ran into each other. I'm not saying it was deliberate but Larsson went down with a head injury," the Blues boss said after the 1-1 draw at St Andrew's.

"To be fair it should have been a consolation goal for Wolves as we had enough chances to have won two or three games.

"Even when they equalised we had two clear-cut opportunities. Saying that we cannot expect to continue keeping a clean sheet but we have to be more clinical.

"In the last five minutes I was thinking to myself 'are we going to rue our missed chances.' The equaliser was a big disappointment for me.

"It was frustrating as one of our rivals had slipped up but there is still a long way to go this season."
