Wolves 1-1 Sunderland
Mick McCarthy and Roy Keane
McCarthy and Keane shook hands before and after the game
Stephen Elliott's 80th minute goal allowed Sunderland to leave Moulineux with a point as Mick McCarthy and Roy Keane came face-to-face as managers.

Jemal Johnson gave Wolves the lead just before the interval when he hit an unstoppable shot past Darren Ward.

Earlier Ward had saved superbly to stop a header from Jody Craddock, who also had a volley cleared off the line.

Ward kept his side in the game after the break, before Elliott's deflected shot found its way past Matt Murray.

  • Wolves manager Mick McCarthy:

  • "Everybody has been dragging the row out.

    "The media were desperate to see a bad reaction but all you've seen is a very good reaction and a terrific match.

    "We're two ultra competitive guys and perhaps we're an example to others."

  • Sunderland manager Roy Keane:

  • "It's all history.

    "The media have made a bigger issue of it than it is. I find it quite boring now. We'll have a drink later, just like I do with the other managers.

    "The performance wasn't great - we didn't pass well, but credit to the players as they dug deep."
