Wolves lost to Sunderland yesterday, after giving them a two goal head start, we got back on level terms, only to give it away again.
Two penalties from Darren Bent and Kenwyne Jones gave Sunderland a 2-0 lead just after half time. But within 10 minutes we were back level thanks to an own goal and a strike from Doyle following free-kick from just 6 yards out (if you haven't seen the goals, click back to our frontpage where a highlights stream is available for UK viewers).
A share of the points now looked possible despite the inevitable charge from Sunderland, but 2 goals in 3 minutes ended any hopes of a point.
Kenwyne Jones and Michael Turner with the goals, while in the last minute a Darren Bent strike was deflected into the net by Michael Mancienne and unfortunately for him it was also chalked up as an own goal.
Before the game, we were all hopeful of coming back with some form of result.
Personally I was looking for a draw, while others were more optimistic.
A few hours before kick off mike1952 wrote on our forum: A tough match this afternoon. Sunderland have Darren Bent knocking them in for fun. Manci and Berra will have to be on their best today. Having said that I am looking for 3 points here, its a tough fixture but not beyond us. Don't expect many changes from the Fulham match, we will probably have Kights and Seb warming the bench. Really looking forward to this match, Sunderland are a very decent team and one I have always enjoyed watching.
Unfortunately, I don't think mike1952 enjoyed watching Sunderland yesterday afternoon, especially the final third of the game and neither did OldGold who after the game said: Sunderland far from decent today and yet won 5 2. One dodgy penalty decision. Doyles claim was 50/50. We were the better side for most of the game, yet again were not clinical enough. One Sunderland goal was v poor defending. At 2 2 I was thinking we were on for a draw at the worst. Another game like the Hull one. Really really annoyed at this one.
So how did Mick see it?
'It will be a talking point that a promoted team got slapped for five but we had lots of chances.' McCarthy told the BBC after the game.
But McCarthy remained positive and rather looking at the potential spin the media will put on the result, he went on to add: 'We had them by the scruff of the throat at 2-2 and there were lots of positives from the performance.
'All of us thought that we could go on and win the game but unfortunately we lost it in the process.'
Vital Wolves Comment: Disappointing to come away with a defeat and letting in five.
But it was going to happen this season and it may well happen again, but we have to dust ourselves off, roll our sleeves up and move on to the next game.
