McCarthy calls for final push

Wolverhampton Wanderers manager Mick McCarthy was delighted with his side's spirited display in a goalless draw at home to Stoke City which edged his side closer to Premier League safety.

Wolves are now six points clear of the drop zone, having now lost just once in their last six games.

McCarthy told the club's official website:"It has been a good weekend for us. We all looked at the results yesterday (Saturday) and I think they were favourable.

"But at the end of it you can only look after your own results and we've got a good point today which I'm delighted with.

"We still want to finish one point better than anyone else or whatever we have to do to stay up, whether it's better than four or five others or just not as bad as three others.

"Someone down below is going to have to get seven points out of the remaining games to get above us anyway. But I'd also like to finish at the top of that bottom pile.

"We want to end with a flurry and not cause ourselves any problems by worrying about other results – let's do it for ourselves.

"Even if we get enough points and we stay up, we want to have fond memories of it going into the close-season and preparing for next season.

"It would be great to be comfortable before the last game of the season and if we work as hard as we did today, we've got a chance."
