McCarhty: Geraint's 'remarkable'

Wolves' Mick McCarthy has given Colchester manager Geraint Williams his backing as the pressure mounts on the Welshman to haul the U`s from the relegation mire.

The club are bottom of the league again after a narrow defeat to Wolverhampton over the weekend, but McCarthy has gone on record as saying he thinks Williams is still the man for the job in Brittan`s oldest town.

"I think that Geraint Williams has done a remarkable job at Colchester, and that's not me being patronising," explained McCarthy at full-time.

"Last summer he lost Wayne Brown (to Hull) in the heart of defence, and also lost the equivalent of 50-odd goals.

"How do you replace guys who have got you 50 goals? To replace the equivalent in the Premier League would cost you £30m!

On suggestions that the club have thrown the towel in and look set to freely surrender thier Championship statues, the Wolves manager added: "Colchester certainly won't be giving up. I heard their players talking afterwards, and they're still scrapping for survival. Everyone coming here will have to work hard."

You are only as good as your last result but all these people who say Williams should go are not thinking along logical lines. Coventry and Southampton changed manager and now look at them - it hasn't helped...

We lost a lot of people in the summer, so give him time.
