Wolves manager Mick McCarthy labelled his side's defending as "ridiculous" as they lost top spot in the Coca-Cola Championship table in embarrassing fashion with a 5-2 defeat to Norwich at Carrow Road.

The Canaries had only scored eight times in 11 games before this match but took advantage of some shambolic play from the visitors to net five in the space of 50 minutes against the men who had been leading the league.

"First things first, it's only fair to say that Norwich played extremely well but we have helped them along the way by playing some ridiculous football," he said.

"You just have to look at the goals they scored. The first one was a mistake, the second one was a mistake, albeit with a very good finish, and the third one was a mistake as well.

"If that wasn't bad enough we then go and concede a needless free-kick, get a man sent off (Richard Stearman), and then concede a goal from the free-kick as well.

"As I said Norwich got about us and worked us very hard but we're much, much better than that."
