'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Ready To Move On

Mick McCarthy has reacted to Wolves loss to Coventry City in the calm and measured way he dealt with their unbeeaten run.

After watching his men go down 2-1 to Coventry, battling for 45 minutes with 10 men, McCarthy was in no mood to wallow in self pity.


'Don't expect a wake because we have lost a game because those players have done ever so well in recent weeks. They have been absolutely brilliant.' he said.

'We had to get beaten at some stage. We weren't going to carry on until the end of the season winning and we just move on to Saturday. I certainly don't think it is a case of having to lift the players because they have been flying.'

The defeat came at a cost that may turn out to be greater than the three points lost.

Jackie McNamara's suspension for his second red card of the season not only weakens McCarthy's defensive options, but will deny him the presence of an influential and highly respected member of his squad, at a time when his influence is going to be most needed

Possibly far worse could be the loss of Matt Murray, who damaged a knee late on, but was forced to continue playing with all subs having been used. The divisions top rated 'keeper is in outstanding form and his loss would be a terrible blow.

All in all an expensive night with no return for an outstanding effort from McCarthy's young side.
