Fletcher: Wolves must stay up in tribute to McCarthy

Steven Fletcher has urged Wolves teammates to keep the club in the Premier League for sacked manager Mick McCarthy.

Fletcher admits to being disappointed at McCarthy's dismissal a week ago.

He said: "It was a bit of a surprise (McCarthy's sacking) to be honest. We all came in on Monday morning thinking we were going to pick ourselves up after the Albion defeat and then heard the news.

"The gaffer brought me to the club after Burnley had been relegated and I've managed to score some goals since I've been here so it's a bit disappointing he's away.

"It's football and the gaffer has been in it a long time. Now for him, and for us and all the fans we have to make sure we stay in the league and prove we are a good enough side.

"We know what our capabilities are and what we can do on the pitch and if we produce that we can stay up."
