McCarthy backs team selection

05 Oct 2009 - 13:21:04

Wolverhampton Wanderers manager Mick McCarthy has defended his decision to leave both Michael Kightly and Sylvan Ebanks-Blake on the bench for the 1-0 defeat by Portsmouth.

The duo have both recently returned after injury problems and McCarthy felt that neither man was quite ready for a full 90 minutes.

He told the club's official website: "I wasn't tempted to start with Sylvan and Kights because they're still coming back from injuries.

"They came on and had an impact which I hoped they would. I was hoping it might be an impact not just to turn the game back in our favour, but to win it.

"It's difficult coming on in those circumstances, but in my opinion and everyone else at the club they wouldn't have had that same impact over 90 minutes.

"If they'd started and had no impact then I'd have had to take them off and would have been a waste of two terrifically talented players.

"They did have an impact coming on, that's for sure."
