Wolves owner vows to give McCarthy time

WOLVES owner Steve Morgan admits manager Mick McCarthy is under pressure to improve results during the second half of the season but insists there will be no "knee-jerk reaction".

Morgan is disappointed that Wolves are hovering just above the Premier League bottom three just past the midway point in the season.

A game against in-form Tottenham at White Hart Lane tomorrow is hardly the ideal task for McCarthy as he bids to arrest a run of seven matches without a win in all competitions, but it seems the Wolves boss will be given time to turn things around at Molineux.

Morgan (inset) said: "Is there pressure on Mick? Of course there's pressure on Mick. He's in a pressure job, absolutely 100 per cent. But that's the nature of the job. There's pressure on everyone.

"Management is not for the faint-hearted. We're all under the same pressure. None of us want to be where we are, and we just have to sort it.

"But we'll sort them in our way. We are a stable club. Our management style is to work through problems.

"Our style is not to make knee-jerk reactions which end up costing a fortune, provide no stability and unsettle the whole club and everybody.

"It's not the way I do things in any other business and it's not the way we do things here. We're not a hire-and-fire club. But at the same time we have to improve."



Connor lands a Zimbabwe club

FORMER Bohemians boss Sean Connor is back in football -- as manager of a club in Zimbabwe.

The Belfast native had been linked with the Derry City job but he has found employment in Africa, as manager of club side Caps United.

"This is an up-and-coming league here and it presents me with a unique opportunity and I'm looking forward to it," said Connor. "There is no point for me to come all the way from Northern Ireland without trying to be successful and I'm not here for fun and I look at this as an opportunity for me to also develop as a coach."
