Doyle & O’Hara rescue point for Wolves

The pressure on Mick McCarthy looks set to have eased for a while at least as his Wolves side stemmed the flow of losses, coming back from 2-0 down to rescue a first point in 5 games.

The Welsh outfit took control of the game in the first half as goals from Danny Graham on 23 minutes and young Welsh player of the year Joe Allen after 35 minutes put Brendan Rogers side two nil up.

And with 6 minutes left on the clock it looked as though McCarthy and his side were heading for a sixth straight defeat that was until Kevin Doyle scored to half the deficit.

An unlikely point was earned just two minutes later when Jaime O’Hara scored to leave Swansea shell shocked.

Wolves manager Mick McCarthy:

“We have played better in the last five games and got nothing. We needed a break, and hopefully that is it.

“We kept hoping it would come, kept trying and sometimes you get a break. It was a great point and I am delighted. I can’t explain the comeback. We were really, really lucky.

“And if that’s the break that changes things for us then wonderful. My emotions are running pretty red-hot at the minute. I’m delighted with the result but angry with a lot of other things.

“I’m not sure we are jumping around for joy as it has been a difficult day for us, but when you pick the bones out of it, it’s a good point.”
