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

Nervous Two Weeks

Mick McCarthy faces an anxious two weeks waiting on the fitness of 'keeper Matt Murray.

Murray jarred his knee in the midweek defeat to Coventry City and despite declaring himself fit on Friday, was substituted at half time during todays 2-2 with Sheffield Wednesday.

'We thought Matt would be ok but clearly he wasn't comfortable in the first half so we had to replace him.' Mick McCarthy said post-match

On the upside, the upcoming Euro 2008 qualifiers should give Murray the breathing space he needs to recover, something McCarthy is thankful for.

'The break has come at a good time for us. We've had a tough programme and there's a hard one coming up.' he added.

With Wolves next fixture against promotion chasing rivals Southampton, it will be imperative that Wolves have a full strength starting 11.

Few teams could afford to be without the divisions top rated player in his position, and Wolves are no exception.

Although McCarthy was quick to praise substitute 'keeper Jan Budtz, despite conceding a goal within a minute of making his Wanderers debut.

'Jan came on and the first touch of the ball he got was when he picked it out of the net. But soon after that he made a great save for us. He did well.'
