Manager Mick McCarthy apologised to Wolves' fans after their 5-1 home mauling by West Brom - but insisted he remains the right man for the job.

Wolves dropped into the Barclays Premier League's bottom three on goal difference after Peter Odemwingie hit the second hat-trick of his career for the visiting Baggies at Molineux. A section of Wolves fans vented their anger at the directors' box towards the end of the game and a couple of hundred protested afterwards by the Billy Wright statue.

McCarthy said: "I would think it was one of the most disappointing afternoons of my career. I apologise for the performance and I've never done that before. But the way we capitulated in the last half-hour is not associated with my teams."
