Wolves are still interviewing for a new manager to replace the fired Mick McCarthy.
Brian McDermott – interviewed for Wolves position
News today that Wolves have put both Reading manager Brian McDermott and Brighton’s Gus Poyet on their list of candidates to be the new boss of the Premier League side, who are currently 3rd bottom.
McDermott had an interview with Wolves last night, and he is due to meet up with potential new Reading owner, Anton Zingarevich today, and the Russian is said to be keen to keep him on at Reading, who are 3rd top of the Championship.
Wolves caretaker boss Terry Connor has today said he has been asked by the Board to prepare the side for Saturday’s game at Newcastle, and he could even be in charge of the team for that game.
That suggests the Wolves Board have not fully decided on hiring former Sunderland manager Steve Bruce, as fans seem to have reacted against the former Birmingham City and Wigan manager.
In the betting stakes, Steve Bruce is generally still high up on the lists, but Brian McDermott and Gus Poyet have both moved up and are in the top three with most betting shops.
It seems that Wolves are now prepared to see their search for a new manager not be completed before Saturday, and Terry Connor could be in charge of the team at St. James’ Park.
We’re not sure whether that is good or bad for Newcastle’s chances on Saturday, in what has become an important game for the Magpies.
