McCarthy revels in Wolves fightback

Published Add your comment

Mick McCarthy admits he is glad he has made life more difficult for new Sunderland boss Martin O'Neill after his Wolves side came from behind to win 2-1 at Molineux.

Kieran Richardson looked to have given the perfect tonic to the watching O'Neill, who will officially take charge on Monday, with a stunning opener but then Sebastian Larsson saw a contentious penalty saved by Wolves keeper Wayne Hennessey, before two goals in quick succession from Steven Fletcher saw Wolves gain a vital win.

When McCarthy was asked if he had any advice for O'Neill, the former Sunderland boss said: "No, I'm just glad I've made his job harder for on Monday morning. I'm thrilled that's he's got a harder job than it looked like for however many minutes here. Martin is a pal of mine but I didn't want to do him any favours."
