McCarthy delight at Reina revenge

McCarthy delight at Reina revenge

While the rest of us were just happy with three unexpected points, Mick McCarthy was happy that Stephen Ward had gained his revenge on Liverpool's Pepe Reina.

Our last trip to Anfield on Boxing Day last year ended in a 2-0 defeat and the sending off of Stephen Ward.

'Pepe Reina ran 70-odd yards to get him sent off when he was going off anyway and it didn't need that,' Our Mick told BBC WM.

Ward was set to receive his second booking for a foul on Lucas Leiva, when shotstopper Pepe Reina ran half the pitch to get involved for no reason other than to try and influence referee Andre Marriner.

McCarthy continued: 'If he recognises Wardy's face now, bearing down on him and putting the winner past him, then I'm delighted.

But McCarthy was also delighted with the points as it got us off the bottom of the Premier League table.

He concluded: 'All those who had a good result, Fulham, Blackburn, Birmingham, West Ham, who were thinking we were going down and that's us out of it, well, they've probably got to think again.'

Vital Wolves Comment: The bottom half of the league table is probably closer than it has been for many seasons at this time of the year.

The gap from 11th to 20th is separated by just 5 points.

This survival fight is far from over.
