Mick McCarthy: I sound like a broken record


Wolves manager Mick McCarthy admitted he is starting to sound like a broken record following Tuesday's 3-2 Carling Cup defeat at Manchester United.

The Molineux club bowed out at the last 16 stage after twice clawing their way back onto level terms only for United substitute Javier Hernandez to score a late winner.

Hernandez came on in the 81st minute after goals from Bebe and Ji-Sung Park had been cancelled out by George Elokobi and Kevin Foley.

Wolves are without a win in their last eight league games and afterwards McCarthy was left to lament another disappointment which he felt wasn't necessarily deserved.

"Again I'm pleased with the performance but disappointed with the result," he said.

"The lads are great and their spirit and character has never been in question.

"We played well on Saturday (losing 2-0 at Chelsea) but couldn't put the ball in the net and we've played well last night and scored two but conceded three.

"We responded very well to their goals and came back twice – and if we keep playing like that then I believe it will turn for us."
