Wolves’ Diogo Jota celebrates scoring his side’s first goal against Birmingham
Wolverhampton Wanderers moved within touching distance of sealing the Sky Bet Championship title after beating 10-man Birmingham City 2-0 at Molineux on Sunday.
Wolves – who secured promotion to the Premier League without even playing on Saturday – opened the scoring after 21 minutes thanks to Diego Jota’s well-taken strike at the far post, before the visitors saw Harlee Dean sent off (52).
The hosts then wrapped up the points via Benik Afobe’s neat finish three minutes from time meaning Nuno Espirito Santo’s side can now be officially crowned champions by drawing at Bolton Wanderers on Saturday.
Meanwhile, Birmingham remain deep in trouble, just two points from safety and having now played a game more than 22nd-placed Barnsley.
