Mick McCarthy Under Pressure To Deliver Results

Paul Smith by Paul Smith / 28 October 2011, 14:28

It has been a tough couple of months for everyone associated with Wolverhampton Wanderers. Not only have they seen their bright start erased with a poor run of results - one point in six games - but they have lost to fierce rivals West Brom and most recently been dumped out of the Carling Cup. Manager Mick McCarthy suffered chants of ‘You're getting sacked in the morning' throughout their recent draw to Swansea which has heightened speculation that his days at the club are numbered. His odds have recently been cut to just 4/1 in the Next Premier League Manager To Be Sacked betting market, making him one of the favourites for the chop.

McCarthy has faced fierce criticism from fans following Wolves' poor performances. However, it must be remembered that the Yorkshireman has done a fantastic job at the club since taking over five years ago. Not only has he guided them up into the Premier League but he has kept them there, with 2011/12 their third consecutive season in the top flight. While McCarthy is unlikely to be worried by a few boos, it will be the results that will have him on edge, and he knows that if they don't improve soon then his job may start to be in real danger.

The season started off so well for Wolves, who were briefly top of the table after collecting six points from their opening two fixtures. However, since their creditable draw away to Aston Villa on September 27th they have endured a woeful run of five straight defeats followed by a barely deserved draw at home to Swansea, leaving them struggling down in 16th place. Wolves were booed off the pitch after the match against The Swans as they just managed to battle back from two goals down to snatch a late draw. Their fortunes are unlikely to improve this Saturday as they must travel to the league leaders Man City who thumped them 5-2 at Molineux mid-week in the Carling Cup. City have been ruthless at home this season, blasting in 13 goals, and it will take a huge defensive effort and a major upset for Wolves to come away with anything but a defeat.

Paddy Power have City as the overwhelming favourites for the match, with short odds of 1/6, while Wolves are priced at 16/1 to come away with a shock win. A draw is also available at 6/1.
