Wolves 'progressing' in new manager search

Club on course to appoint new boss for next week's match against Newcastle

Wolves believe they are still on course to appoint a new manager before the club's next Barclays Premier League match against Newcastle on 25 February.

Club owner Steve Morgan and chief executive Jez Moxey have been interviewing candidates to replace Mick McCarthy, who was dismissed on Monday following a string of poor results which have left the club two places off the bottom of the League on 21 points.

Former Charlton and West Ham manager Alan Curblishley and ex-Birmingham, Wigan and Sunderland boss Steve Bruce have been interviewed for the vacant Molineux position.

But Moxey said the club will not be rushed into a making an appointment.

"Things are progressing," he told Wolves' official website.

"We are continuing to work to the timetable we indicated at the outset of this process and remain optimistic we will be able to fulfil those requirements.

"Our intention has always been to have a new manager installed in time to take charge of the team for the Newcastle match and that remains the case.

"But, I stress, we want the right candidate, not the quick candidate."
