Mick praises Toffees boss Moyes
The two clubs meet at Goodison Park on Saturday and have both
recently gone through lean spells although Wolves did overcome
Wigan in their last outing a fortnight ago. But McCarthy is full of
admiration for what Moyes has achieved in a decade with the Toffees
while he has also enjoyed relative success in five years at
Molineux. McCarthy said: “With Dave, his record has been excellent
but like everyone else, you have to cut your cloth accordingly.
“Like everyone else, we’ve just got to scrap away with it and deal
with whatever hand you are dealt with and keep cracking on. “Not
everyone has got a sheikh or a Russian billionaire to fund them and
we do get a fair bit of pleasure out of doing it our way as well.
“I certainly do and I’m sure David does as well. He can be proud of
his achievements.” Wolves ended a run of eight games without a win
against the Latics while Everton have lost six of their last seven
matches. McCarthy said: “I think we are similar, have a very
similar record, and the stakes are pretty high this weekend. “It is
their home game, they will looking at it as an opportunity to win.
“We are looking at it as something we want to get something from.
“Having just got a win under our belts, we don’t want to get back
to losing ways.” Wolves have a virtual clean bill of health after
Republic of Ireland players Kevin Doyle, Stephen Ward and Stephen
Hunt reported back after their country’s Euro 2012 play-off success
over Estonia. Right-back Kevin Foley is the only player not
available as he continues his comeback from an ankle problem.
