Warnock in three-way fight for Wolves job


Wolves' search for a new manager to replace Mick McCarthy is understood to be progressing quickly, with owner Steve Morgan already interviewing candidates after flying back from a skiing holiday.

Steve Bruce and Neil Warnock, sacked by Sunderland and Queen's Park Rangers respectively, and Alan Curbishley, whose last management job was with West Ham in 2008, are understood to be the leading contenders.

Wolves slipped into the relegation zone after a 5-1 defeat at home to West Bromwich Albion.
