The game against Sunderland turned in the space of 30 seconds. Did Mick McCarthy's career also turn at the same time?
When Sebastian Larsson belly-flopped his way to a penalty for Sunderland, Wolves were caught starring into the abyss.
A spot kick from 12 yards to send Wolves 2-0 behind with less than 20 minutes remaining, looked certain to cement a record of nine defeats in eleven.
Would that have been too much for our Mick McCarthy to survive? Would the Molineux board really have considered spending this week looking for a new manager if that run of defeats had continued last weekend?
"I`m probably the most pragmatic, straightforward and honest manager you`ll ever come across.
"No, it couldn`t have gone on." McCarthy told the Express & Star.
So in the space of 30 seconds, McCarthy went from dreaming about clearing his desk, to watching Wayne Hennessey save Larsson's penalty to watching Steven Fletcher find the equaliser.
With the wind at their backs, the momentum shifted and Wolves piled forward and eight minutes later, Fletcher had bagged a second and with it the three points.
Wolves are now four points clear of the bottom three and McCarthy has gained some breathing space.
McCarthy added: "I`m more than aware results will ultimately determine what happens to me, But I`m also aware that most supporters want me to do well.
"You`ll never please everyone, but I reckon 80 per cent of the supporters would be in my favour if you asked them.
