Wolverhampton Wanderers have been relegated from the Barclays Premier League.

Defeat at home to Manchester City confirmed their fate, ending their 3 year spell in the top division.

Wolves have only won 5 league matches this season, collecting just 23 points from a possible 105.

Manager Terry Connor took over from Mick McCarthy in February, but he couldn't save them from the drop.

It is not clear if Connor will keep his job next season.

Captain Karl Henry admits that Wolves deserved to go down.

"We all hold our hands up. We've just not been good enough this season. We've come up short this season."

"We got promoted a few years ago and we stayed up for two years through hard work and team spirit, and things like that, and this season we just weren't good enough."

Coventry City completed a miserable weekend for Midlands football fans, as they were also relegated, falling from the Championship into League One.

The Sky Blues were beaten by Doncaster Rovers. Bristol City's victory at home to Barnsley meant that even if Andy Thorn's men had won, it would not have been enough to save them.

Coventry City have won just two Championship matches since January.

Their final match of the season is away to Southampton.
