Do I not like that.

Wolves 1, QPR 1

Wolves boss Mark McGhee last night launched a blistering attack on Graham Taylor which left the former England manager's reputation in tatters.

McGhee, who took over from Taylor at Molineux nine months ago after walking out on Leicester, left no room for doubt over his opinion of "Turnip".

With Wolves chasing a third successive win for the chance of topping the First Division, McGhee claimed: "The squad I inherited was short of both physical and mental strength - and they displayed practically no desire to try to appreciate tactics."

McGhee's outspoken comments are sure to spark a storm - and Taylor, now back in charge at Watford, might even be tempted to ask the FA to bring a disrepute charge.

Last night, McGhee's side immediately put QPR, also holding a 100 per cent record, to the test and were so close to grabbing a quick lead.

Steve Corica was desperately unlucky to see his 20-yard drive bounce off the bar in the second minute with Juergen Sommer well beaten.

But the breakthrough came in the 24th minute, with Simon Osborn lashing Wolves in front from a superb 25-yard free-kick which bounced down from the underside of the bar.

It was a sweet moment for Osborn, McGhee's first signing for pounds 1million after being frozen out at Loftus Road.

Rangers snatched a shock equaliser four minutes before half-time. There seemed no threat when the ball fell to Daniele Dichio - until the striker crashed in a 30-yard volley which flew over Mike Stowell.
