McCarthy dismisses safety talk

10 April 2010 12:22
Wolverhampton Wanderers manager Mick McCarthy has dismissed suggestions that his side are already safe from the threat of relegation from the Premier League. Wolves are five points clear of the drop zone ahead of the weekend action, with McCarthy concerned that some pundits have already marked his team down as definite survivors. He told the Shropshire Star: "We need two wins at least. We need to keep the intensity going and not to take the foot off the pedal. "I don't know if two wins does it, but if we get to 38 points we'll have had our point per game. But who knows? It might be more. "It gets silly at this time of the season because people get results from nowhere. A bad result for us and a couple of good results for others can suddenly turn it all around. "Whenever I see relegation run-ins they only mention Wigan and Bolton, they don't give us a mention. "That concerns me because it almost lends itself to a nice, cosy atmosphere around the place with everyone patting each other on the back and fans saying it's great. "But I won't allow the players to lose focus. We haven't done anything yet and we need more points."
