Wolves boss McCarthy happy to forget one personal record after Fulham win

Wolves boss Mick McCarthy was keen to talk down one personal achievement from yesterday's victory over Fulham.

It was his first triumph at home in the top flight of English football. At his 22nd attempt. He never savoured such a moment during his tenure at Sunderland and was forced to wait until his club's third fixture at Molineux before breaking his duck.

Fulham played the willing stooges but McCarthy being McCarthy, he was keen to divert the attention.

"Yep, my statistics are rubbish," he said. "It's normally highlighted when I get the sack. That's life I suppose.

"Look, I couldn't care less. I tend to look at what's in front of me, rather than behind me. My stats are good, bad and indifferent. I suppose that particular statistic is one to throw up. But it's gone now."
