McCarthy takes Wolves blame

Wolves manager Mick McCarthy accepted the blame for his side's display in the 1-0 defeat at Burnley, as the Championship leaders continuing their slump in form.
McCarthy's men have won only one of their last nine Championship games and are in danger of being toppled from the top of the table.
He told his club's official website: "We're always disappointed when we lose, but perhaps I should take responsibility.
"In the last two away games I've set up as 4-4-2 with two wingers, wide open with the express intention of winning it and maybe I have to look at those tactics.
"We've played like that all season long and were being loved for it when we posted two seven-game winning runs and got to the top of the league.
"Now we're not being loved as much at the moment that's for sure and it's been difficult for us.
"Perhaps we're having a tough time and I should have changed it, so I'll take the rap for that."
