McCarthy happy with Wolves effort

Wolves have slipped into the bottom six of the Barclays Premier

League after losing away to Fulham and Tottenham and at home to

Aston Villa. They led at Craven Cottage and White Hart Lane and

were undone by a last gasp goal from revitalised Villa striker

Emile Heskey. McCarthy knows there is no room in football for hard

luck stories but is optimistic results will improve ahead of the

weekend clash at Wigan. He said: “Of course, it’s a concern to lose

games late and losing any game is a concern. It’s really

disappointing. “There’s no point keeping talking about playing well

and then losing games. “It’s no good saying that when we don’t get

any points out of the games. “We have played better than three

defeats but that’s the stat that matters. “But we just need to keep

performances like that to turn it around.” McCarthy believes his

players have the right sort of character to put their recent poor

run behind them. He said: “When you’ve been beaten three times on

the bounce, it becomes increasingly hard to keep getting the

performances. “But they are a great set of lads and I’ve no doubt

the performances will be there.”
