McCarthy: Wolves good value for point

Published Add your comment

Wolves boss Mick McCarthy felt his side fully deserved their point - and perhaps more - after twice coming from behind to draw at fellow strugglers Hull on Saturday.

Wolves scored for the first time in five games as they drew 2-2 against their Barclays Premier League relegation rivals at KC Stadium.

When asked if his team had earned a good point, McCarthy said: "I think we should have had three - but we have got one more than we had."

He added: "I think being behind twice renders it a good point but I think the way we played and the chances we had, we did enough to win it.

"I thought the first goal was against the run of play. Our first goal was an own goal but we set off well in the second half and forced them into a mistake.

"And I think we deserved our second one, for sure.

"I thought we were the better team in the second half."

Hunt's goal came from the penalty spot after Ronald Zubar bundled over Jozy Altidore and McCarthy had no complaints with the award.

He said: "I thought it the worst decision I have seen in a long time - by Ronald Zubar! The penalty was a penalty, no question in my mind."
