Mick McCarthy rues late loss at Old Trafford


Wolverhampton Wanderers manager Mick McCarthy has admitted Saturday's last-gasp 2-1 Premier League loss at Manchester United was a tough one to take.

Striker Sylvan Ebanks-Blake looked to have won the Midlanders a point after he cancelled out Ji-Sung Park's opener, but the Korea star swooped in stoppage-time to hand the Old Trafford giants victory.

The nature of the disappointment has understandably left McCarthy shell-shocked, but he acknowledged his players' fine contributions.

"Great performance, top, top class to go to Old Trafford and play as well as that," he admitted.

"I thought we could have won it in the end, we had a chance, so to end up losing is hard to take.

"It is fine margins and that is why Manchester United are where they are and why we are where we are unfortunately.

"Can we turn those fine margins into our favour and make sure that when we get into the position we were in at 1-1, we don't get beat?

"We have been terrific but we've got nothing to show for it. We're still on nine points so it means nothing to me. I want to win games."
