DAVID Wright had no excuses after his under-hit back pass resulted in Stephen Ward scoring Wolves' Championship winner at Portman Road last night.

“It was a big error by me,” said the right back signed from Wigan in the transfer window. “My mistake cost us. And I hold my hands up and take the blame.

“It was a poor pass and left Lewis Price a long way short. You cannot make individual mistakes like that.

“The result was tough to accept as the team worked so hard. We need a slice of luck - a break. We need three points.”

Goalkeeper Lewis Price made a number of good saves and was busier than his opposite number Matt Murray.

“We have to put a line under last night, and now concentrate on Southampton.”
