Match Preview

McCarthy: Loyalty is a two-way thing Wolves manager Mick McCarthy has called for his team's fans to hold off booing until the final whistle as they look to end their five-match losing streak in the Barclays Premier League against Swansea. Sections of the Molineux crowd voiced their discontent during the team's last home match against Newcastle, most notably by sarcastically cheering as former captain Karl Henry was substituted. However, McCarthy insisted his team will always give their all, and that he expects the same from their supporters. He said: "Every one of my players give 100% every week. "If we don't win, I'm more than happy to listen to the boos and the jeers, because that's what happens. "Not just here, it happens all over the world. "But whilst the players are on the pitch,100% effort from us, and 100% effort from the fans. "It's a joint venture, isn't it? "We're all part of it, and we should all be in the tent, peeing out, not outside the tent, peeing in. "Because let me tell you, once that starts, then there's trouble." Wolves host the Swans with the visitors still looking to pick up their first Premier League point away from home. "It's the clash of the titans," McCarthy joked. "Rubbish away record plays rubbish home record at the minute." Despite Swansea's frailties on the road McCarthy denies this is a 'must win' game - although he adds neither team can afford to lose. "It's 'must not lose', that's for sure," he said. "We need a performance, but it's just not guaranteed. "It's easy to say 'we must win this', well actually, there's a Swansea team down the road on their way up saying exactly the same things. "They'll be saying we've just lost three on the bounce here." Swansea manager Brendan Rodgers believes McCarthy will drag Wolves out of their current predicament, but is still confident his team will bag three points against their struggling opponents at Molineux. Rodgers thinks the 52-year-old will be able to drag the club away from trouble, saying: "Every team has a run of games. He (McCarthy) has done a brilliant job there and had periods like this before and always come out strong. "Mick has done a wonderful job at Wolves in his time there in the Championship and taken them through. "There has been great developments there both on and off the field. "He understands like us all that it's very difficult in the Premier League." Swansea go in to the match on the back of a poor performance at Norwich where they conceded in the first minute before going on to lose 3-1 against their fellow Barclays Premier League newcomers. So Rodgers may be tempted to shuffle his back four in light of the poor defensive showing at Carrow Road. The Swans boss has been short on options at the back since Alan Tate broke his leg, and Steven Caulker injured his knee against Arsenal. He has received a boost in that area after finally completing the signing of Vangelis Moras from Bologna on a free transfer. The Greece defender had been awaiting clearance from the Italian Football Federation before signing his short-term contract at the Liberty Stadium, and he may now be given his first start after being an unused substitute at Carrow Road last week. "Vangelis comes in with good experience. He's played the last four seasons in Serie A and is an international player," Rodgers said. "I watched him in training for a week or so and felt if we could get him up to speed he'd be a good asset for us. So far he's proved that. "He's adapted excellently to our training and he is getting better with every reserve game. He's in the squad and available for selection."

Match Report

Wolves fight back to deny Swans Wolves ended their five-match losing run as late goals from Kevin Doyle and Jamie O'Hara saw them salvage a 2-2 draw against Swansea at Molineux and alleviate some of the pressure on manager Mick McCarthy. The Welsh side were in complete control at half-time courtesy of goals from Danny Graham and Joe Allen and looked set to record a first Barclays Premier League away win. McCarthy's side were booed from the field at the interval and there was considerable disapproval from the home fans when he removed wingers Adam Hammill and Matt Jarvis for Nenad Milijas and Adlene Guedioura. But Doyle tapped in after Michel Vorm could not hold a Sam Vokes effort, before O'Hara calmly slotted the leveller after intelligent play on the left by Doyle to earn a point. There had been signs of home nerves during a tense opening, with Karl Henry particularly guilty of some wayward passing which allowed Swansea to settle. Nathan Dyer's drive across goal was turned just wide of his own goal by Christophe Berra before Wayne Hennessey tipped over Allen's effort from the edge of the box. Wolves were rocked back on their heels but responded by creating the best chance so far. Doyle robbed Leon Britton and it took a sharp block from Angel Rangel to stop Jarvis getting a shot on target, before Vorm sharply beat away O'Hara's volleyed shot. But it was Swansea who took the lead in the 23rd minute as Mark Gower's lofted pass evaded Roger Johnson's desperate attempted clearance for Graham to control and slot low beyond the advancing Hennessey. Wolves sought a rapid response and Vorm had to be at his athletic best to tip over a Hammill free-kick. But Swansea stunned their hosts by doubling their lead as Graham was released down the right, with the striker teeing up Allen for a simple tap-in. And It could have been worse for Wolves as Hennessey's failure to hold a Dyer shot resulted in confusion, but they managed to survive to the break. Henry fired narrowly wide as Wolves, presumably with some choice words from McCarthy ringing in their ears, made a purposeful start to the second half. Jarvis headed wide at the far post after a lengthy spell of pressure but a lack of guile and patience on the ball was being exposed as Swansea's comparative comfort in possession saw them carve out another chance. Allen was the instigator with a neat turn in midfield, and Hennessey had to be alert to deny Scott Sinclair's close-range effort from a Dyer cross. O'Hara was booked after a late challenge on Dyer following another jinking run from the lively winger before a shot from Sinclair was deflected up and over Hennessey by Johnson's block, but landed on the roof of the net. McCarthy's made a double change as he removed wingers Hammill and Jarvis, to howls of derision from the home crowd, to introduce Milijas and Guedioura. Hennessey had another slice of fortune when his weak parry from another Sinclair effort proved just enough to get the ball past the post. Wolves piled on the pressure and had appeals for a penalty turned down when O'Hara went to ground under a challenge from Swansea substitute Wayne Routledge. But it proved a brief reprieve as the game was turned on its head with two goals in quick succession. Doyle tapped home after Vorm could only parry a close-range effort from substitute Sam Vokes in the 84th minute to give the hosts hope. And they were level just two minutes later as Vokes freed Doyle down the left, and the Republic of Ireland international's intelligent cut-back was fired high into the net by O'Hara. Swansea were suddenly rocking and Doyle had a chance to find a winner in stoppage time, but his tame header was easily held by Vorm.
