Wolves hoping to catch vulnerable United

Wolves boss Mick McCarthy will lead his team to Old Trafford on Tuesday night hoping Manchester United could be more vulnerable than usual after losing two straight home games and struggling with injuries.

While McCarthy was hoping the task was not mission impossible, he was wary a beaten United team was a most likely a dangerous one as Wolves seek to continue their mini-resurgence.

Wolves beat Tottenham at White Hart Lane against the odds on Saturday, and McCarthy refuses to give up hope of a repeat dose at Old Trafford.

McCarthy said: "When was the last time Manchester United lost two at home on the bounce? But we are not giving it up. Far from it. We might just catch them lacking in confidence! I know United have got loads of injuries.

"But I saw them play without any centre backs recently in the Champions League and give someone a slapping so I am not feeling sorry for them. I know there is never a good time to play them. It is probably even worse after they have just been beaten at home.''

Wolves striker Kevin Doyle, who scored the only goal at Tottenham, was happy to talk up his side's chances of creeping further away from the relegation zone.

Doyle said: "Obviously United are one of the best teams in the world and it's always extremely difficult to get something there. But you have to go into every match believing you can get a result and we're confident after winning the last two games.''

While McCarthy is hoping to pull off what would be one of the biggest shocks of the season so far, he does admit Sunday's clash against Burnley at Molineux is ultimately going to be more important to their survival hopes.

McCarthy said: "Let's clear it up. Let's not dance around the question. Is Burnley on Sunday more important to me than this one? Yes, it is. Without being disrespectful to Burnley, have we got more chance of beating them than Manchester United? My guess is yes.''

Having endured a terrible run of just three points from eight games, Wolves have revived their battle to beat the drop with wins against Bolton and Tottenham to claw their way out of the relegation zone. McCarthy, however, is not about to start sitting back and resting on his laurels.

The former Sunderland boss added: "More wants more. We are at 16 games with 16 points. A point a game. Over the season you need just a bit more than that. We were behind it before the last two games and we are now back at that level. If we end up with around 38 points we will be in the ball park.

"I said we would have a good run and win a couple of games and someone else would lose a couple. We are now fourth bottom. Now the worry is that we will drop into the bottom three. I am not bothered if we do. So long as we are not there come the end of the season that is when you don't want to be there.

"All the stats about being doomed if you are there at Christmas were blown out of the water by West Brom when they were bottom of the table and still stayed up. We just need to keep doing what we are doing. Keep picking up the points where we can, when we can. Just keep grounded, keep doing what we are doing and see what happens.''

McCarthy is set to call-up Kevin Foley to make only his fourth start of the season as a replacement on the right wing for Dave Edwards who will be missing for 10 weeks with the ankle ligament damage he suffered at Tottenham.
