McCarthy wary of silly season

Wolverhampton Wanderers boss Mick McCarthy refused to say that his team were safe from the threat of relegation after a hard-fought goalless draw with Fulham at Craven Cottage.

Wolves are six points clear of the drop zone with games running out, having put together a run of just one defeat in their last seven Premier League outings.

McCarthy told the club's official website:"We're not quite there, but games are running out and we've got points ahead of a few other teams.

"We're in a better position than others and have given ourselves a really good chance.

"But there are still big games to play – three really important games which we need to get points from.

"Let's not presume anything – we need to keep working and keep picking up points.

"Today is another point which means we've kept the status quo with Hull and a point more on Burnley, but it's silly season when results tend to be strange at this time of year.

"You get teams with nothing to play for against those with everyone to play for and we need to make sure we're not affected by any silly results."
