McCarthy: I'm feeling the heat

Mick McCarthy admits the pressure is mounting on Wolves to turn around their flagging campaign in the wake of their latest defeat.

Saturday's 2-1 loss to relegation rivals Blackpool has left McCarthy's side with just nine points from their opening 14 league games.

Wolves have now lost four consecutive matches in league action since upsetting Manchester City, but McCarthy is determined to put things right.

The Molineux tactician knows results have not been up to scratch and he is willing to do everything he can to avert the crisis that is looming.

"All managers know in football, it's about getting results," explained McCarthy.

"If you're not getting results the pressure mounts. It's a huge fight. It was before Saturday. That result made it even harder.

"I worry about what we can do to make sure we start getting some points.


"It can become doom and gloom very quickly but we have to make sure that doesn't happen."
