Wolves boss Terry Connor says being relegated will hurt him personally.
Connor will take his fair share of responsibility should they go down.
"I won't be slightly tarnished by it, I will be tarnished by it (if Wolves go down)," he said. "That's not a problem. I worked under Mick (McCarthy) for a number of years so I will be accepting whatever responsibility I have to take for the season.
"The last 13 games have been my responsibility."
Connor believes tragic events such as the death of Wales manager Gary Speed and Bolton midfielder Fabrice Muamba's cardiac arrest will put matters into perspective if Wolves return to the npower Championship.
"It's not the end of the world. There would be a lot of hurt though," he said.
"Things have happened this season in football, such as what happened to Bolton at Tottenham, and to Gary Speed, so football can sometimes be taken out of context.
"But a lot of people will feel the hurt - supporters, staff and players, if that's the case (relegation). The process will start for next season straight away and you hope to build again for the future."
