Wolves have dismissed manager Mick McCarthy after Sunday's 5-1 defeat at the hands of West Brom left the club in the relegation zone.

Steve Bruce and Alan Curbishley are the early favourites to replace McCarthy, who had won just one of his last 13 matches as manager.

Carlos Tevez is set to return to Manchester City tomorrow, with Roberto Mancini revealing he could play a part in the club's title push.

Elsewhere, Spurs fans made no secret of their desire to see manager Harry Redknapp remain at the club after Saturday's win over Newcastle.
