Wolves boss hopes to stick to the standard

Published Add your comment

Mick McCarthy is convinced Wolves will emerge from their mini slump if they maintain the standard of performance seen in their last three games.

Wolves have slipped into the bottom six of the Barclays Premier League after losing away to Fulham and Tottenham and at home to Aston Villa. McCarthy knows there is no room in football for hard luck stories but is optimistic results will improve ahead of the weekend clash at Wigan.

"Of course, it's a concern to lose games late and losing any game is a concern. It's really disappointing," said McCarthy.

"There's no point keeping talking about playing well and then losing games.

"It's no good saying that when we don't get any points out of the games. We have played better than three defeats but that's the stat that matters.

"But we just need to keep performances like that to turn it around."

McCarthy believes his players have the right sort of character to put their recent poor run behind them.

He said: "When you've been beaten three times on the bounce, it becomes increasingly hard to keep getting the performances.

"But they are a great set of lads and I've no doubt the performances will be there."
