McCarthy: We're not dirty

Wolves manager Mick McCarthy insisted his side are earning a reputation they do not deserve after criticism of their tactics in the 2-1 defeat at Fulham. Fulham striker Bobby Zamora is facing at least a four-month lay-off after sustaining a broken ankle during a hard challenge from Wolves skipper Karl Henry and received oxygen before being carried off on a stretcher and taken to hospital. Wolves were shown six yellow cards and one red - Christophe Berra was sent off in injury time for a second bookable offence - and Fulham fans chanted "you're a disgrace to the Premiership" at them in the second half. "I think it's grossly unfair," said McCarthy. "I'm really sorry to hear about Bobby but Danny Murphy came to me and said he'd have a word with Bobby because it was a fair and good tackle. "We were involved in a tough game on TV a couple of weeks ago and suddenly we're the devil incarnate, but we're far from that. We compete and compete fairly. "We had some silly bookings and I'm mad at Christophe for getting sent off. But I don't see us as some overly-physical team that deserves that sort of treatment."
