Mick McCarthy is fed up being associated with "heroic failure" and admits Wolves need to quickly acquire the winning habit after dropping into the Barclays Premier League bottom three.

Wolves manager McCarthy has been happy with the general performance of his players in recent games, which have included creditable away draws with Arsenal and Tottenham.

But the 3-2 home setback against Aston Villa last weekend extended Wolves' run without a win to eight games, from which they have collected only four points, and he said: "I don't want people talking to me about how we've played good, bad or indifferent."
