Wolves manager Mick McCarthy was not too downcast about his side's display in the 3-2 home defeat to Bolton Wanderers, even though it left his team in the relegation zone.

Wolves fell three goals behind before rallying to almost grab a point against Owen Coyle's team.

A first-minute own goal by Richard Stearman and further efforts by Stuart Holden and Johan Elmander put the visitors in control before Wolves hit back with goals by Kevin Foley and Steven Fletcher.

McCarthy said after the match:"We made it very difficult (for ourselves) and we shouldn't have to come back from three goals down, or one after 50 seconds, that's for sure.

"It's difficult then to repair it, although I thought we had plenty of chances in the first half and I thought we started the second half well.

"It's a great goal for Elmander from his point of view, but from mine it's awful. We lost the plot for a few minutes and got caught for the third, but having come back we should have got the equaliser."
