You've Got to Keep Going


08:30 25th August 2014

Kevin McDonald felt that Wolves were full value for their last-minute victory over Cardiff City on Saturday afternoon.

91 minutes were on the clock when McDonald's low cross into the Cardiff area was unintentionally hooked beyond David Marshall at the near post by Bluebirds captain Mark Hudson sealing back-to-back victories for Kenny Jackett's men.

When asked after the game if he would be chalking another mark on his goal tally McDonald replied: “I won’t be claiming that one, no.

“It was a cross that went wrong! It was a bad, bad cross but you can put 10 good ones in and that bad one counted and that was the main thing. It was nice to get the three points."

Although there was an element of luck in Wolves' winner, the Scotsman claimed that they deserved the three points.

He said: “We felt we deserved it. It was a long, tough game and as the manager keeps telling us, you’ve got to keep going until that final whistle and we got our rewards for it.

“In the changing room afterwards we said we felt we’d performed well and it was nice to get that goal at the end. It didn’t matter how it went in, it was just a nice ending to what we felt was a good performance."

“We created a lot of chances in the first half and we felt we should have been a goal or two up but it wasn’t to be. But we kept on grafting away and trying to do the right things and we got our rewards in the end."

Victory over Cardiff on Saturday made it three wins out of four league games this season for Wolves and McDonald hopes the team can continue in their rich vein of form.

“We’ve had the same mentality in every game and we felt we should have beaten Rotherham as well, explained the midfielder before adding: "We’ve just got to keep going in the same way as we have been.

“We know ourselves that it’s a long, hard season and we’re only four games into it so we’ll continue to keep our heads down.

“It’s good for the confidence to beat the three relegated teams and all the boys are over the moon with the results we’ve had so far.

“The gaffer has set out the way he wants to play and we’re trying to do that by getting good results week-in, week-out and we’ll see where that takes us.
