Kevin McDonald’s home debut in Friday evening’s victory over Crawley Town may have been brief, but he soon made his mark with the home faithful.
After Town’s stoppage time equaliser, it was the Scot who drove a path through midfield before hitting the cross that was handled by Kyle McFadzean resulting in a match winning penalty from Leigh Griffiths.
The new signing admitted: “It was strange to come in after the first couple of the games of the season. The transfer window is still open so I am just delighted to be here now.
“I felt it was the right time to move on and I stand by that. I have come to a great club and you could see by the crowd on Friday that I made the right decision.”
“There’s a massive fanbase, as there was at Sheffield United, but I knew a couple of the boys and I spoke to them and they told me how the club is and it felt right.”
Whilst Wolves’ top spot after the Crawley was to last less than 24 hours, Kevin is still happy with his new team’s lot.
He said: “It’s nice to be sitting near the top of the league and we can’t be in a much better place. We did well on Friday, and we got three points, however we got them.
“It may have only been for 24 hours but we set out our stall on TV and played well. We passed the ball well and it was a learning curve for the last 20 minutes of the game. We are going to be under pressure at home against teams like Crawley.
“They are not coming here expecting to win, they are coming to play on the counter attack. Fair play to them they did well but we got the three points and that’s all that matters.
“It was like at Sheffield United last season. Teams will come to massive stadiums like Molineux and they are going to throw everything at you. It’s part of the pressure and it’s a great pressure to have. I would rather be playing here than one of the teams coming to play us. That is the way we need to see it, take the pressure and perform to it.
“The manager has brought me in to hopefully play a big part of a promotion push and the boys in centre midfield are good players. They have shown me the way they have wanted to play. It’s good competition for places and I have learned a bit off them with the way they want to play.“
