Sunderland game is huge admits McCarthy
Mick McCarthy and Sunderland will always perk up the interest in any fixture, not that Wolves fans need any sub-plots to remain interested in this game.
Wolves and Sunderland go into the game level on points just above the relegation zone.
We have lost our last two games, while Sunderland are without a win in four.
Neither side can boast the better form, but whoever comes out on top will claim a valuable set of three points.
"The Sunderland game was always going to be huge. If this (defeat to Chelsea) is going to make it any bigger than so be it.' our Mick told the Birmingham Post.
Some believe it is crucial to continue to get points on the board with a trip to Old Trafford to take on Manchester United following the Sunderland game.
McCarthy added: "What`s the point in looking beyond that - we`ve got Manchester United away the week afterwards? Let`s deal with Sunderland.
