Wolves manager Mick McCarthy was delighted at how his side upped the ante in the second half to earn a 2-1 victory over Crystal Palace.

Wanderers made it their best start to a season since 1962/63 as they edged to victory at Molineux and secured a result that kept them top of the Championship and unbeaten after six games.

"We didn't get about them in the first half as we can do and took our foot off the gas a little bit," said McCarthy. "But what pleased me was that we put it back on the pedal in the second half and deserved to win. We could have put it beyond doubt but it was hugely important that we won that sort of game when we had to grind it out."

"It had just become expected of us that we would score goals and it's not always going to happen.

"It's great that we've had such a good start and we're enjoying it. But it's still only a start."
