Wolves boss Mick McCarthy says Roy Hodgson deserves Manager of the Year for his work with Fulham this season.
McCarthy believes Hodgson has to be a candidate for the League Managers' Association award at the end of the season.
McCarthy said: "Roy's done a great job. We were both in Australia last summer during pre-season and you look at the number of games Fulham have played since then.
"Roy has to be in contention but then so has Alex McLeish at Birmingham.
