Mick McCarthy defends Wolves’ approach


Wolves manager Mick McCarthy reacted angrily to suggestions that his side have become overly physical this season, following his team's 2-1 reverse at Fulham.

Some Cottagers fans chanted 'you're a disgrace to the Premiership' during Saturday afternoon's action, with the home side having Bobby Zamora stretchered off with a serious leg injury following a tackle by Karl Henry.

However, a defiant McCarthy railed:"We're not overly physical. The worst two tackles were by Fulham players on Karl Henry and Steven Fletcher.

"I just don't want us to be labelled in a certain way so that officials are persuaded by that kind of attention. It cost us yesterday.

"Suddenly we've become the devil incarnate. We had one game against Newcastle that was really tough and Match of the Day highlighted all the challenges.

"But we watched the game on the following Monday and there were similar challenges being made on our lads.

"It was a tough game but that brought it to everyone's attention. The tag given to us after that match is unfair.

"It's media-led, but now we've had the crowd singing we're 'a disgrace to the Premiership', which is completely untrue."
