Wolves boss McCarthy knows Bolton clash critical

Wolves boss Mick McCarthy is focused on the crucial battle against a Bolton side who are just as desperate for points.

Wolves also face a trip to relegation rivals Burnley next month and McCarthy has no fears about the prospect of playing both teams away from home.

He added: "The away games don't bother me at all as we have played well away from home.

"The games we have coming up are huge games and they are an opportunity for us to put some distance between ourselves and Bolton and Burnley.

"They will be viewing it exactly the same and thinking they have got an advantage because they are at home.

"If we go to Bolton and take a point we will still be above Bolton.

"Never ever should a point in the Premiership be devalued, certainly for us lads in the bottom half of the table. Any point is so valuable."
