Birmingham City boss Steve Cotterill says that his side will not pay Wolverhampton Wanderers 'too much respect' when the teams meet at St Andrew's.

Birmingham City boss Steve Cotterill has suggested that he and his first-team squad will be unfazed by the visit of Championship leaders Wolverhampton Wanderers.

Cotterill has endured a difficult start to life at St Andrew's, but last weekend's 1-1 draw at fellow promotion chasers Sheffield United has given the Blues hope for Monday's derby clash.

The 53-year-old has admitted that Wolves deserve a certain level of respect, but insists that his players will not fear taking on the in-form team in the division.

Cotterill told reporters: "I'm expecting to see a confident team because their scorelines and their results have suggested that, but we've already played teams in the top half.

"By the time we play Wolves on Monday that will be six games out of the nine for me where they've been in the top nine or something like that. The top four we've played all of them come Monday night.

"It hasn't been an easy run of games anyway. It's been a run of tough games. We'll treat Wolves with the respect they deserve but hopefully not too much on Monday night."

Birmingham currently sit in 21st place in the second-tier standings.
