Wolves boss McCarthy hails Craddock after Stoke stalemate

Wolves boss Mick McCarthy was pleased with his defenders after their 0-0 draw with Stoke City.

McCarthy was full of praise for the way his defenders coped with the constant stream of long throws from Stoke midfielder Rory Delap - 25 in total during the 90 minutes.

Jody Craddock was in particularly fine form in what was the 500th league appearance of his career despite having to have his head bandaged up after a clash of heads with Abdoulaye Faye.

McCarthy said: "I thought Jody and Christophe (Berra) were outstanding. Some teams would have crumbled (from the succession of long throws) but we dealt with them.

"It is a great weapon to have in your armoury."
