Birmingham boss Steve Bruce has apologised to referee Mark Halsey and admitted the official was correct in awarding a penalty against his side in the defeat to West Ham last weekend.
After reviewing the incident Bruce has accepted he was wrong and he has made his apologies to Halsey
Bruce said: "To be fair last week, I said the referee was wrong - but I was wrong. It was a penalty.
"Straight after games you sometimes say things about incidents and then you look at them again and analyse them more - and it was a penalty.
"I do apologise to the referee and his assistant. I gave him (Halsey) a hard time last week and he didn't deserve it. In my opinion it was a penalty."
