McCarthy sticks by Stearman
Gaffer Mick McCarthy will continue to back Richard Stearman in the coming weeks.
In a way he doesn't really have much of a choice Jody Craddock is out for a further 2 months and Steven Mouyokolo has had one training session following injury.
Once Mouyokolo returns to fitness then we might have a bit of a battle for a starting spot between Stearman, Mouyokolo and Christophe Berra, but until then despite the mistakes we have to stick by Stearman.
"I think Stearman has done well since he`s come into the side," McCarthy told the Express & Star.
He continued: "I`m sure he wasn`t too happy with the first goal we conceded on Saturday [against Sunderland].
"He also gave the penalty away against Man City but he went on to play well in that game.
"He`s doing fine.
Vital Wolves Comment: Ideally I`d like to see us bolster the defence next month when the transfer window opens and give Stearman a chance to develop out of the limelight and criticism. At 23-years-old his best days are ahead of him.
