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."

sn'tthis strange. Last season we were worried that we were stuck with a Dinosaur in Moyes while Liverpool and Everton were disappearing into the distance with their young, spritely managerts, playing football from heaven. Progressive managers, they said. Managers who understand the modern game.........

ood list, some crackers in there. For me, I'd have had Steve McManaman for Liverpool away at Celtic in the UEFA cup in 1997. I was in the ground that night and everyone kept screaming at him to make a pass, but he just kept going and going and going...brilliant, and in the dying minutes too.
