West Brom manager Roy Hodgson believes Wolves counterpart Mick McCarthy has been a victim of his own success ahead of Sunday's Black Country derby at Molineux.

McCarthy steered Wolves to promotion and has kept them in the Barclays Premier League for a third successive season. But some fans have called for him to be sacked in recent weeks and certain bookmakers make him favourite to be the next top-flight manager to lose his job.

Hodgson said: "Mick has done a magnificent job at Wolves - and so has the club owner (Steve Morgan). Mick took them up and then stayed in the Premier League but then people want to see you move on even further and the expectations go up."
