Mick McCarthy admitted he was at fault for our poor start which gave Everton a chance to win the game.

But a poor performance by both them and the referee let us off the hook with just the one goal coming from Tim Cahill.

‘We were poor in the first half, abject actually, but we held on until the 43rd minute,’

‘I’ll take responsibility for that because I set the team up and was tinkering with it.Our Mick told Wolves Official Website.

So with McCarthy admitting he was wrong with the first half tactics, you would have thought a couple of a changes at half time would follow, but nope, instead the same eleven went out with a different plan and came out and won the second half.

McCarthy added: ‘I didn’t make any subs at half time – I told the players I thought they were the best outfield ten to play before the game and wanted them to show me that was the case.

‘We got up the pitch, stopped them playing and I thought fully deserved the point we got in the end.

With 15 minutes to go we got our reward and it was also fantastic to see Sylvan Ebanks-Blake get the goal!

It might have been made by Doyle, but the confidence boost for SEB will be brilliant.

A good point earned and a nice solid start to the season!
