Wolves boss Terry Connor insists the Molineux club should not be judged on their decision to sack Mick McCarthy until the end of the season.
Owner Steve Morgan decided it was time for a change in the hot-seat in the wake of the 5-1 home humbling by local rivals West Brom back in February, with rookie Connor eventually appointed after a protracted recruitment process in which several more experienced candidates turned the role down.
McCarthy's former assistant has endured a baptism of fire to life in the Premier League, with Wolves slumping to the foot of the table after collecting only one point from five game and conceding 16 goals in the process.
But the former Leeds striker is adamant now is not the best moment to debate whether it was the right time to elevate him to the hot-seat after the former Republic of Ireland manager's exit.
"You will have to ask the football club whether it was the right decision to get rid of Mick," Connor said.
"That was the decision. They've asked me to take the job to the end of the season.
"What's happened in the past has happened. What we are looking forward to now is eight more games and wanting to survive in the Premier League.
"Was it the right thing to do? It's hindsight. You are looking back at something which actually hasn't finished yet.
"We will look over the whole season, review it, and if you've made mistakes, learn from them, and hope you don't make those mistakes.
"It hasn't finished yet. Who knows if it was the right or wrong thing to do. But the club made the decision and we all have to move on from there."
Connor admits he is enjoying the challenge despite bottom-placed Wolves' current predicament.
"I would say being a manager has been more than what I expected," he said. "I've watched other managers work and the responsibilities that come with being a manager.
"You can attend as many management courses as you like but, when it's on your head and your responsibility, nothing could prepare you for that.
"I'm still enjoying it. I know it's difficult times and didn't expect to walk in to a Premier League job when a team has won six on the bounce.
"But you take your opportunity when it comes and try and make the most of it."
