Terry Connor has spoken of his pride at being named the new manager of Wolves until the end of the season.
Mick McCarthy's former assistant will take the reins at Molineux after a fraught 11-day search for the ex-Republic of Ireland coach's replacement.
And the 49-year-old is keen to put all the talk of a managerial circus behind him and focus on the task ahead.
Connor said : "I'm proud, privileged and honoured to be asked to take care of the team for the rest of the season.
"We have unfinished business. We have two seasons where we have survived and want to make it three - and the players are of the same mind.
"The challenge is the 13 games - can we stay up?
"These 13 games are important to the football club. My job is to get the players ready for each game and to do their best."
Connor admitted he had not had the chance to speak to McCarthy since being told of his appointment on Thursday evening.
And the former Leeds forward was keen to dismiss Wolves fans' concerns that his appointment would mean no changes at Molineux.
"I've known Mick for a number of years," added Connor. "We're two Yorkshiremen but we couldn't be more different in some ways.
"Mick's got his way and I've got mine."
Connor will take charge of his first game when Wolves visit Newcastle on Saturday.
