Cool Wolves' players agreed to unite despite Mick McCarthy's exit

Wolverhampton players knew split camp would be a disaster
Terry Connor has the players' respect, says captain Karl Henry

Karl Henry has revealed a meeting between the Wolves players hours after Mick McCarthy's sacking has united the squad for the battle for Premier League survival. Henry stressed the need for no splits in the Wolves camp if they are to guarantee a fourth season of top-flight football ahead of Sunday's match at Fulham.

Wolves began the interim manager Terry Connor's reign with a fighting 2-2 draw at Newcastle last Saturday.

Henry was the club captain under McCarthy and the Irishman's first signing when took over at Molineux in July, 2006. He said: "The players have been here a long time and appreciate everything Mick has done but we have got a job to do. We are professionals and the day Mick was sacked we got together and said whoever comes in, we have got to embrace the way he does things and his philosophy.

"If we have a split camp, it would not do any favours to us and we have got to get one with it. We need to stay in this league for ourselves and the club."

Henry has pulled no punches about the way Wolves have underachieved this season and admits they are to blame for McCarthy's dismissal. He said: "It has been a difficult last few weeks and all the lads are gutted that Mick has gone. He is a good manager and has done a lot here. Ultimately players get the manager the sack. There is enough quality for us to be a mid-table side and we have not produced. But we are not panicking. We have been in deeper holes than this before and got out of them. We are disappointed that we are here again but we are not adrift. People might want to write us off but it is a load of rubbish. We got a good point at Newcastle.

"Mick said we might need 38 points and it is completely achievable. Maybe five or six wins. We have got to get on with the job and the lads are fully embracing what TC wants to do.

"I have a lot of pride in this club. I definitely think there are three sides worse than us. I don't think we are going to go down. I've never felt that at any stage of the three seasons in the Premier League.

"The fact we have been down in the bottom three before is not something to brag about but it will stand us in good stead because we are not fazed about having to scrap and fight to get out of this situation."

Henry has confidence in Connor's abilities to galvanise the squad over the next two-and-a-half months. He said: "TC has got a calmness and the respect of the dressing room. TC has got the respect of the players. Some people are on about TC being with Mick but he is his own man. He is a good coach."
