Berra impresses McCarthy

Wolves manager Mick McCarthy singled out defender Christophe Berra for special praise after a 2-1 victory over Fulham at Molineux.

The Scotland centre-back provided an assist for Kevin Doyle's opening goal - his first since a £6.5million summer transfer from Reading - and was dominant in the air at both ends of the pitch.

"It was a good team performance. There have to be a lot of good performances for us to have won that game but I thought Christophe was a difference class," said McCarthy.

"I believe he got man of the match, he'd have got my vote. In the last 10 minutes when they were throwing balls into the box he headed everything."

McCarthy accepts his side are not the most talented in the Barclays Premier League but believes what they lack in quality they make up for in effort.

"We won't win anything if we don't work hard," he added.

"I thought it was a really good performance. We were energetic, we closed them down and pressed the ball really well.

"Having seen them play last week (a 2-1 win over Everton) I thought we handled it well and we only really suffered when we gave the penalty away.

"I think we were just starting to get a bit leg-weary and then it became nervy."
