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.
