Wolves manager Mick McCarthy has warned people not to write his team off against Manchester United.


McCarthy takes his side to Old Trafford on Saturday afternoon and thinks his side can pile further pressure on Sir Alex Ferguson.


The Molineux club are on a high after their comeback win over Sunderland last Sunday and McCarthy has refused to write his side off.


“Of course it's wrong to write games off, but I can understand people looking at the home games," he told the Express and Star.


“Supporters tend to look past United and see two matches we should win.


“That's not necessarily the truth, as we proved last season, and Stoke and Norwich will both be tough.


“There's no point looking beyond United, but we might get a point or win, who knows? I never go anywhere and think we're going to get beat.


It will be a tough ask for Wolves as they haven’t won away at Manchester United for over 30 years.


Sir Alex Ferguson’s side have had a bad week, which has seen them crash out of the Carling Cup and and Champions League.


Their Carling Cup exit was an embarrassing loss to Championship side Crystal Palace, while a similarly embarrassing defeat in Basel put paid to their Champions League dreams for this year.
