Connor 'privileged' to be given Wolves job

Terry Connor has spoken of his delight at being given the Wolves managerial job for the remainder of the season.

The former Leeds United, Brighton & Hove Albion and Swansea City defender has stepped into the role vacated by Mick McCarthy early last week and is looking forward to giving his best as the West Midlands outfit strive to stay in the Premier League.

"I'm proud, privileged and honoured to be asked to take care of the team for the rest of the season," he said.

"We have unfinished business. We have two seasons where we have survived and want to make it three - and the players are of the same mind.

"The challenge is the 13 games - can we stay up?

"These 13 games are important to the football club. My job is to get the players ready for each game and to do their best."

Connor's first game in charge will be against Newcastle United at Sports Direct Arena tomorrow.
