Wolves boss McCarthy looking to bounce back in Black Country derby
Wolves manager Mick McCarthy is intent on breaking a four-match losing streak the next time his team steps out in the Premier League.
The Molineux outfit have to lick their wounds whilst the international break is on before making the short trip to West Bromwich Albion for the Black Country derby at The Hawthorns on October 16 and McCarthy hopes his players are capable of turning around a poor bout of league for.
"Of course they are hurting, but it doesn't have a bearing on you every game you play afterwards," McCarthy told the club's official website.
"We started well against Newcastle but then you consider we've lost three games on the bounce, and you concede from a corner, it just knocks the guts out of you for a while.
"I don't want us to leave it until the last three minutes of the season before clinching survival.
"The best place to top this run is where we go a week on Sunday.
"Every little mistake it seems we're being punished for at the minute and that can happen in this league.
"I think we've still only played poorly once this season - QPR was a poor performance and apart from that we've played well."
