McCarthy has no problem with Stoke tactics

Mick McCarthy will have no problem if Stoke City employ controversial tactics when they play his Wolves side this weekend.

Both sides have to agree to the use of a towel to dry the ball before a thrown in, but some accused Shotton and his club of attempting to circumvent the regulation by wearing a special shirt with a towelling lining, something he later denied.

WOLVES SUFFER AT GOODISON

Wolverhampton Wanderers suffered yet another defeat as they went down 2-1 in their match against Everton. However, Wolves manager Mick McCarthy was extremely critical of the penalty that was awarded to Everton, which ultimately led to the winner.

Speaking after the match, McCarthy was incensed, saying that the penalty was extremely soft and that a number of penalties would have to be given every week if it had been the case universally.

MCCARTHY DISAPPOINTED

When you play against the side who have decimated the Premier League Champions 6-1, you could be forgiven for hoping for anything less than a drubbing.

Considering Wolves came through the game against Manchester City with a 3-1 loss, there might be much to be happy about, but the sad matter of fact is that they left the Etihad Stadium without any points.

"We played well. We had to defend in the first-half and Wayne Hennessey made a couple of magnificent saves.

"You can imagine how he feels. He is as good as any goalkeeper in this league and it is such a shame it has cost us.

WOLVES BACK MCCARTHY

Wolves owner Steve Morgan has backed boss Mick McCarthy to succeed once again next season. Wolves host Blackburn at Molineux on Sunday knowing a win would be enough to keep them in the Premier League.

"You never give the dreaded vote of confidence but Mick has been here for five years and I don't believe you get any progress at all by chopping and changing," said Morgan.

"Chopping and changing happens at other clubs and what good has it done them?"

WOLVES ANNOUNCE 25 MAN SQUAD

Wolves have become first club to announce 25-man Premier League squad and have excluded Michael Kightly in their list. The former Grays Athletic winger has suffered a setback in his recovery from injury, prompting the boss to leave him out of the squad.

The ex-Sunderland manager cited the player's long-term absence - since Kightly has not played in over nine months - as the reason behind the exclusion, while revealing at the same time that the player will be allowed to go out on loan when he regains his fitness.

WOLVES TARGET BENJANI

Wolverhampton Wanderers and two other clubs are targeting Manchester City striker Benjani. The Zimbabwe international joined the Citizens in 2008, but after failing to make a significant impact at the Eastlands club he was packed off on loan to Sunderland.

However, the temporary switch to Wearside proved to be underwhelming, as the forward failed to score a single goal in the Premier League during his time at the Stadium of Light.

On his return to City, the 31-year-old was released as a free agent, and he is now free to talk to any club he chooses.

WOLVES SNAP UP VAN DAMME

Wolves have made their first summer signing with the capture of Belgium full-back Jelle Van Damme from Anderlecht.

Van Damme moves to Molineux on a three-year deal with an option for a further 12 months after the two clubs agreed an undisclosed fee for the 26-year-old. Manager Mick McCarthy was pleased to have snared Van Damme, who has experience of life in England having played for Southampton in the 2004/05 campaign.

"Jelle is a player we've been watching for a long time and I'm delighted we've managed to sign him," said McCarthy.
