Skipper Roger Johnson insists the Wolves players and not sacked manager Mick McCarthy are to blame for the club's current plight.

McCarthy was dismissed on Monday after Wolves slipped into the bottom three of the Barclays Premier League following Sunday's 5-1 home defeat by West Brom.

However, when asked how much blame the players should take for Wolves' plight, Johnson told Sky Sports News: "All of it. The manager can maybe take five to 10% (of the blame). The rest of it is down to the lads. We have let Mick down, the club down and ourselves down."
