Wolves win leaves McCarthy buzzing


Wolverhampton Wanderers manager Mick McCarthy has spoken of his pride after watching his side beat Sunderland 3-2 on Saturday afternoon.

Going into the Molineux battle on the back of a four successive defeats, Wolves grabbed the lead through Kevin Foley five minutes into the second half.

But the Black Cats responded with Darren Bent and Danny Welbeck turning the tables only for Stephen Hunt to tie things up and fellow substitute Sylvan Ebanks-Blake left to finish off and seal a massive three points.

McCarthy also singled out George Elokobi after the full-back performed admirably slotting in at centre half, helping the club land victory for just the third time this season.

"I'll never have a heart attack that's for sure because if I would have had one it would have been today. I think we earned it, I'm really proud of them and the players deserve all the credit," he said.

"He's a good defender and I thought he had an outstanding game playing against good players as well.

"They had Welbeck and Bent starting then (Asamoah) Gyan came on and I thought he had a great game."
