Wolves captain Coady: It wasn't a penalty!

Wolves captain Conor Coady admits there's major frustration after defeat at Manchester City.

A Raheem Sterling penalty decided the game for City.

Coady later said: "We knew how hard it is coming here and that they would have a lot of possession. It was about being organised, structured and compact, reducing them to a few chances. And I thought we did that."

On the penalty decision, he continued: "For the game to be called on that, we are desperately disappointed because we have given everything.

"It wasn't a penalty. I get on with referees really well and I haven't got a bad word to say about them, but sometimes you can see with the player reactions, they tend to look like 'yeah that's a bit dodgy that one'.

"For a game of this magnitude to be decided on a contentious decision is massively disappointing."

On Raul Jimenez's red card, Coady concluded: "Only Raul can tell you. We are behind him 100%. We did everything to stay in the game and I thought we played really well."
