Ward: Players are behind McCarthy

Acting skipper Stephen Ward insists Mick McCarthy is still the right person to manage Wolves and has the backing of all the players.

McCarthy has had to endure a trio of home games against Swansea, Wigan and Sunderland and there has been speculation that a poor result could see the end of his five-year reign, but a haul of seven points from nine - including Sunday's 2-1 success - have eased those fears.

Wolves are now four points clear of the bottom three in the Barclays Premier League, and Ward responded emphatically when asked if McCarthy is the right man to lead Wolves, saying: "I think that's a silly question. He has kept us up twice, he has got us to the Premier League."
