Wolves manager Mick McCarthy has admitted he will take any sort of win against Cardiff City on Sunday, as long as his team pick up all three points.McCarthy's side have won just one of their last nine league games, but still lead the Championship by three points.He told BBC WM: "The desire and expectation has turned into anxiety, nerves and a lack of confidence."It's affecting everybody, and the only way to put things right is by playing well and winning. Well, just winning."McCarthy has sensed a change of mood around the club, a change which he expected given the club's recent run of form.emp_load.getEmpEmbeddedParams("emp_7901894");The squad went to La Manga for a warm-weather training camp this week, and Stearman thinks it will be beneficial for their promotion chances."It was great for us to get away for a little bit of team bonding," he added. "We've got some good work done and we'll be heading in fresh for the weekend."Wolves could be ahead only on goal difference from second-placed Birmingham City at the top of the Championship by the time they kick off against Cardiff on Sunday (1300 GMT).Blues play away at Coventry City on Saturday (1500 GMT) and three points at the Ricoh Arena will take them level with Wolves.And third-placed Reading, who have two games in hand on Wolves, would close to within a point if they win at home to Bristol City.
