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."
