McCarthy blasts Murphy's "silly" comments
Wolves boss Mick McCarthy has hit out Danny Murphy's verbal attack on himself and his team and insisted: "We are not villains."
Murphy accused McCarthy, Sam Allardyce and Tony Pulis for sending out their Wolves, Blackburn and Stoke players "too pumped up".
But McCarthy is adamant he has only ever had a 30 second conversation with the Fulham skipper after Karl Henry's challenge on Bobby Zamora which saw the striker end up with a broken leg.
The former Republic of Ireland manager has spoken with Allardyce, the League Managers' Association and PFA chief executive Gordon Taylor over Murphy's comments.
McCarthy said: "I've only had one conversation with Danny Murphy and that was after the Fulham game when he said `don't worry, I'll make sure Zamora knows it was a fair tackle' and I said `great'.
"If Danny Murphy can decide on, or analyse my team talks or beliefs from that one 30 second conversation, then he is a better man than me.
"I find it incredible coming from someone who has never been in the dressing room with me, has never worked with me. Apart from that 30 seconds, we have never had a conversation.
"For him to pontificate like he has done, is completely wrong.
"It has not made me angry. It was a silly comment without a great deal of knowledge. It has created a huge furore and the media have had great mileage out of it."
McCarthy is hoping Murphy's comments do not influence referees perception of Wolves ahead of their clash with fellow strugglers West Ham at Molineux.
He said: "It is damned hard to pick up points. It is made harder by comments like that.
"I hope it doesn't affect referees. I am one of those managers who go into their room before the game and listen to them and treat them with respect. I don't send in my assistant or the physio.
"We will continue to play the same way but hopefully with less yellow cards.
"I don't think Danny has the info, information or experience to say something that would hurt me.
"It has not hurt me, it has made life harder for us but if people push against us, you have to push back."
Meanwhile, West Ham manager Avram Grant has confirmed Thomas Hitzlsperger will be sidelined for the next four months due to a thigh injury.
Hitzlsperger joins Zavon Hines and Jack Collison (both knee) on the long-term injury list ahead of the trip to Molineux.
Kieron Dyer is in contention to return after overcoming a stomach bug that saw him miss the 1-1 home draw with Fulham two weeks ago.
Valon Behrami, Herita Ilunga and Benni McCarthy, who have all had their own fitness concerns of late, are all improving and come into contention.
Noble snatches Hammers a point
The Barclays Premier League basement battle between Wolves and West Ham ended all square at Molineux after Mark Noble's penalty salvaged a 1-1 draw for the visitors.
Wanderers took the lead in the 10th minute thanks to Matt Jarvis, who volleyed home after Robert Green had failed to clear a cross.
But Noble made no mistake from the spot in the 53rd minute, lashing the ball past Marcus Hahnemann.
A point each means Wolves remain in 19th place in the table with West Ham below them at the bottom of the pile.
Both sides went into the match knowing a win would lift them out of the relegation zone and it was the hosts, without a win in six league fixtures, who made the more positive start.
There was an initial setback when Jody Craddock - named captain in place of the suspended Karl Henry - had to come off only five minutes into the game, with Richard Stearman introduced as a substitute and Christophe Berra taking the skipper's armband.
David Edwards saw a shot deflect wide soon after though, and Green could only punch the resulting corner to David Jones, whose effort was off target.
Moments later Green fisted the ball away again from Stephen Ward's cross, and this time Jarvis was able to capitalise, volleying home to put Wolves in front.
The England goalkeeper, whose form has fluctuated this season, then did much better to tip away a strike from Jones.
Wanderers looked as if they had a second goal in them and it might have come if a golden shirt had been on the end of Kevin Doyle's ball across the box, but instead it was Tal Ben Haim who diverted it behind for a corner.
Steven Fletcher headed the ball back into the danger zone where Green managed to beat the rising Stearman.
Manuel Da Costa then made what could have been a costly error by slipping on the edge of his own area, but having picked up possession, Wolves were unable to make the most of it, with Jarvis' shot rebounding off Danny Gabbidon and leaving the Hammers defender on the turf.
Having struggled to make an impression in the opening period, West Ham were given a lifeline at the start of the second half when Kevin Foley bundled over Victor Obinna in the box and referee Mark Clattenburg pointed to the spot.
Noble stepped up and drew things level with a confident conversion that sent Hahnemann the wrong way.
Within seconds Wolves were back on the attack and Green made another wild-looking punch, Jones drilling the ball back towards goal but seeing the attempt blocked.
The visitors then almost turned the game on its head as Frederic Piquionne rifled against the crossbar.
At the other end Jarvis appealed in vain for handball after his cross hit Lars Jacobsen and Stearman headed a corner wide.
Play switched again and Kieron Dyer twisted and turned in the box before unleashing a strike which fell to Obinna, whose shot was also diverted away.
Wolves boss Mick McCarthy withdrew Fletcher for Jelle Van Damme, while Avram Grant brought Carlton Cole into the fray for West Ham in place of Dyer.
Cole was not quite quick enough to latch onto a neat pass from Noble soon after and then lost control of the ball as he advanced on goal with a little under five minutes remaining.
McCarthy threw on another striker in Sylvan Ebanks-Blake but it was Piquionne who had the ball in the net at the death, only for Clattenburg to disallow the effort for handball and show the striker a yellow card.
