With Portsmouth heading for administration and a nine point penalty, the survival spots are down from three to two.
The points penalty that Portsmouth will receive later today, will leave them on seven points. While we will be nineteen points better off. A tally that with twelve games to go, sees us pretty much uncatchable even if Portsmouth were to win most of their remaining games.
That means that there are now two spots in the relegation places, which we need to avoid and the same thought will be going through the minds at West Ham, Sunderland, Wigan, Hull, Bolton and Burnley.
That said, McCarthy believes that Portsmouth, like a wounded animal trapped in a corner, could come out fighting.
'We have got to finish above three teams, not just Portsmouth. 'We have got them to play and I wonder how it will affect them. Will they suddenly think 'well, we are just playing football now'. Wolves boss Mick McCarthy told the Birmingham Post.
He added: 'Is that a good thing or a bad thing? Does the pressure of having a chance to stay in the league help or hinder? Does the fact that they have had nine points deducted and (relegation) looks almost inevitable, does that help or hinder if you are playing against them?
'All of a sudden the pressure is off. They have got good players and who knows they might just turn up and relish the prospect of playing with no pressure at all.'
Vital Wolves Comment: Must be a terrible thing to go through as a supporter, so good luck to all the Pompey fans while you battle to save your club.
