Malky Mackay: Never easy at Molineux

Fraizer Campbell grabbed a brace as Cardiff swept into a two-goal lead before Bakary Sako reduced the deficit on 70.

The result strengthens their lead at the top of the Championship table to eight points and Mackay said: "It was never going to be easy here and I have never had an easy game at Wolves.

"They have players with Premiership quality and I was delighted with the way we played and controlled the game to get our three points.

"We knew that Wolves would throw caution to the wind after half-time and they did and I thought we handled that well.

"I was pleased with the way we saw the game out in the last 10 or 15 minutes."

As for Campbell's contribution, he added: "I am delighted that he has come in and hit the ground running in terms of the goals.

"He wasn't match-fit but he is beginning to get back up to speed now and him and Craig Bellamy are getting an understanding together."
