Molineux boss to be given time to turn around form.
Wolverhampton Wanderers manager Mick McCarthy insists he retains the support of club hierarchy ahead of Sunday’s bottom-four clash against Wigan at Molineux.
McCarthy came under fire from some fans after the recent home draw against Swansea, to which the Wolves boss responded by labelling his critics “mindless idiots”.
Wolves have picked up only one point from the last seven games, but McCarthy is confident owner Steve Morgan and chief executive Jez Moxey continue to trust him.
His Wigan counterpart Roberto Martinez is also under pressure to turn around results, but he too enjoys the support of his chairman Dave Whelan.
“The support I have from Steve and Jez and everybody has always been at its strongest when it has been tough,” said McCarthy.
“Whenever it has been tough, I’ve had great support. That’s really great to have – and I’m sure Roberto feels the same at Wigan with the backing he gets.”
McCarthy is aware Wolves have to regain the winning touch after their poor run.
“We just need to win a game and Sunday is our next opportunity,” he added. “We just need that feeling of winning games because we haven’t had it for a while.
“The players are working their socks off and we try to keep the self belief up and tell them it will turn around.”
