Collins Plays Down Rift

Collins Plays Down Rift

The first time Mick McCarthy met Roy Keane following their public spat at the 2002 World Cup it was hardly a private affair.

Carried out under the full glare of the Skysports cameras at Molineux, and surrounded by a pack of paparazzi, the pair shook hands, and ended a five year spat.

Defender Neill Collins has served under both men, and is glad that this weekends coming encounter won't be overshadowed by personal issues again.

'I think both managers are glad to have got it out of the way,' he said. 'I think this time it's all about the players.'

The press interest at the time verged on rabid, although as Collins points out, that didn't distract either team then, and certainly won't this time around either.

'I don't think it affected us much at the time because players aren't really bothered with all that.

'I think this time we can just concentrate on the game itself because it's a big enough match without all of that going on.'

Wolves deperately need to come away from The Stadium Of Light with at least a point, if not better.

And Collins will need to be back to his very best when he returns to his old club for Wolves to have any chance at all of achieving it.
