Wolverhampton Wanderers have lodged an official complaint to Walsall and the Football Association over racist abuse.
In 2014 you would have hoped that this idiocy had been eradicated from grounds in England, but unfortunately Wolves 3-0 win over Walsall was over shadowed by alleged racism in the ground.
There were reportedly two incidents inside Walsall's Banks's Stadium.
The first was aimed at George Elokobi as he warmed up and the second was during the second half behind Goalkeeper Carl Ikeme.
On Monday Wolves released the following statement on Wolves Official Website:
'Ikeme and Elokobi both reported, to Wolves` management staff, the abuse which, respectively, came from behind the goal in the second half of Saturday`s game at the Banks`s Stadium and during the first half when Elokobi, a substitute, was warming up.
'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.
While Wolves head coach Kenny Jackett told BBC West Midlands: 'There's no place for racism in the game and as we've said in our statement, we've made an official complaint, both to Walsall and to the Football Association.
'I'm sure we'll all be working towards stamping that out and making sure that it doesn't happen again. That's the most important thing.'
Vital Wolves completely backs Wolverhampton Wanderers, George Elokobi and Carl Ikeme stance on this matter.
Any form racist, homophobic or any other abuse has no place in either our club, sport or society.
