McCarthy draws strength from owner's support
Friday 04 November 2011
The Wolves manager, Mick McCarthy, insists he retains the support of the club's hierarchy ahead of Sunday's bottom-four game against Wigan at Molineux.
McCarthy came under fire from some fans after the recent home draw with Swansea, to which the Wolves boss responded by labelling critics "mindless idiots".
Wolves have taken only one point from the last seven games, but McCarthy believes that owner Steve Morgan and chief executive Jez Moxey have faith in him.
"The support I have from Steve and Jez and everybody has always been at its strongest when it has been tough," said McCarthy. "That's really great to have."
But McCarthy accepts that Wolves have to regain the winning touch after their poor run, and soon. "We just need to win a game and Sunday is our next opportunity – we just need that feeling of winning games, because we haven't had it for a while," he said.
"The players are working their socks off and we try to keep the self-belief up and tell them it will turn around."
