Wolves boss McCarthy pleased for goal scorer Ebanks-Blake

Wolves boss Mick McCarthy was delighted for Sylvan Ebanks-Blake after his struck in their 1-1 draw with Blackburn Rovers.

Ebanks-Blake scored his first Premier League goal in open play with 10 minutes remaining, just 60 seconds after coming on as a substitute.

But, although McCarthy was happy to praise the striker, he was also quick to highlight the team effort which has taken Wolves to the brink of survival.

He said: "It was nice for him to score. He has been upset through not scoring goals and not playing as much as he would have wanted.

"I am thrilled for him and his goal has got us a point. But let's not forget the other points everyone has helped to graft out during the season when enjoying a moment of euphoria for Sylvan."
