McCarthy confident of Club backing

Wolves boss has support of Molineux board despite recent run of form

Former Sunderland boss Mick McCarthy has been in charge of Wolves for five years

Wolves boss Mick McCarthy says he has the full support of the Club's hierarchy ahead of Sunday's match against Wigan Athletic.

McCarthy came under fire from some fans after the 2-2 Barclays Premier League home draw against Swansea City.

Wolves have picked up only one point from the last seven matches but McCarthy says he has the faith of club owner Steve Morgan and chief executive Jez Moxey, in the same way Latics manager Roberto Martinez enjoys the support of chairman Dave Whelan.

"The support I have from Steve and Jez and everybody has always been at its strongest when it has been tough," said McCarthy.

"Whenever it has been tough, I've had great support. That's really great to have - and I'm sure Roberto feels the same at Wigan with the backing he gets."

McCarthy, however, is aware Wolves have to regain the winning touch after their poor run. "We just need to win a game and Sunday is our next opportunity," he said. "We just need that feeling of winning games because we haven't had it for a while.

"The players are working their socks off and we try to keep the self belief up and tell them it will turn around."
