Wolves interim manager Terry Connor concedes that he may need to step aside if the club are relegated from the Premier League.

Wolverhampton Wanderers interim manager Terry Connor has accepted that he may need to step aside if the club are relegated from the Premier League.

Since taking over from Mick McCarthy, Connor has seen the Black Country club slide further towards the drop and they are now nine points adrift of safety.

"I'm a big boy," said the 49-year-old. "I know the score in football. I know what happens if Wolves are relegated. I went in with my eyes open.

"I'm sure I could swallow my pride and do something else."

Connor, who has been with the club for 13 years, added: "It is kind of strange when people say your future rests on 13 games after 13 years here. I knew when I took over that would be the case and I welcome the challenge."

He has collected just one point in his eight games in charge of the club.
