Mick McCarthy has hailed under-fire striker Andy Keogh and urged everyone at the club to stick together as the race for promotion from the Championship hots up.
Keogh's 79th-minute substitution during Tuesday night's 3-3 draw against Norwich was greeted with some ironic cheers from the home support before sections of the Molineux faithful sang his name, much to the delight of the Wanderers boss.
"Andy's different class, he plays his part and works his shift and I thought having come off they (the crowd) then responded in the right way to him," said McCarthy. "I'm not getting involved in all that."
He added: "We've got 15 games left to play. There's two scenarios here - we win and we go up and everybody's happy or we don't and we'll all be unhappy.
"Let's just stick together and keep cracking on, the lads are all as close as ever. Keogh will still be a big player for us."
