Wolverhampton Wanderers manager Mick McCarthy hailed the fantastic performance that secured his side's first win in their last six outings.

A Steven Fletcher brace either side of a Adlene Guedioura goal ensured a 3-1 victory over Midlands rivals West Bromwich Albion at Molineux on Saturday to lift Wolves out of the relegation zone.

And McCarthy hopes the result can act as a springboard to propel his side to achieve Barclays Premier League survival.

"It is pleasing and timely to be out of the bottom three, but I am still fully aware that there is work to be done," he said.

Wolves now occupy 17th in the table, sitting one point ahead of Wigan Athletic and Blackpool, and three clear of West Ham.

And with upcoming fixtures against Sunderland and Blackburn Rovers, Wolves' future remains in their own hands.


Following Sunday's result, McCarthy reserved special praise for two-goal hero Fletcher who epitomised everything that was good about their performance.

With five goals in his last seven appearances, Fletcher has successfully stepped up to the plate in the absence of Kevin Doyle, and will be a key component in ensuring Wolves' top-flight status this season.

"He [Fletcher] has scored some important goals and it is lovely to be proved right," McCarthy said of the £7million striker signed from Burnley.

"I think he has proved to be exactly what I thought he would be. He was delighted with his goals and I am thrilled with him."
