Winning finish pleases McCarthy

Wolverhampton Wanderers manager Mick McCarthy was a happy man after his side finished their season with a 2-1 home victory over Sunderland.

The win left Wolves in 15th place in the Premier League, having eased well clear of relegation danger in the past couple of months.

McCarthy told the club's official website:"It's nice to finish the season off with a win and to finish with the points we have got and the position we are in is very pleasing.

"As I said on the pitch after the game I'm delighted with how the players have gone about their business and I'm very proud of them.

"It's a great achievement for us and it was lovely to finish on a high. If you lose on the last day, even if you've had a good season, you go away thinking about it.

"We will try and improve the squad in the close season and I've no doubt we will. We want to get better.

"We all move on and I will move on at some time and the players will too, but the club will always stay the same.

"I think the fans can be hugely proud of this team this year because I am – against the odds we've stayed up.

"It looks like it's comfortable now, but it never was – it's been anything but comfortable."
