McCarthy: 'It will go to the last game'

Mick McCarthy says Wolves's Premiership survival will hang in the balance until the final game of the season.

Mick McCarthy has said he believes Wolves's Premiership survival will hang in the balance until the final game of the season.

The Midlands side - currently one from bottom with three games to play - next face rivals West Brom at Molineux on Sunday.

"We will get all that nonsense (about Albion sending Wolves down) - and it is nonsense because if we win the last two games everything will be hunky-dory," McCarthy told the club's official website. "We could win the next three, we could draw two and win one and stay up - I don't know what it's going to take.

"The game won't decide anything - unless we win it. I don't doubt for one moment that if we win it we will stay up. I think we will anyway, but if we win this game we will go into our last two with far more confidence.

"We'll have had an away draw and a home win - but we've got to do it. Wishing it and thinking is one thing - doing it is completely different against a team in form."

Albion are currently 11th on 43 points and are virtually assured a return season in the Premiership.
