Wolves complain over 'racist abuse'

Wolves have made a complaint to Walsall and the Football Association after Carl Ikeme and George Elokobi reported racial abuse from home fans at Saturday's League One match at the Banks's Stadium.

Goalkeeper Ikeme and defender Elokobi reported the abuse, which allegedly occurred in two separate incidents, to Wolves' management staff.

A statement from Wolves read: " The complaint relates to a small number of individuals in the crowd at Saturday's game and will not sour the good relationship that exists between the two clubs.

"Both Wolves and Walsall are fiercely committed to stamping out all types of discrimination within football and will vigorously investigate all allegations of racist abuse.

"Wolves will always strongly support its players who are the victims of discrimination, and Carl Ikeme and George Elokobi both displayed admirable restraint in the face of receiving the abuse on Saturday."
