Wolves boss Terry Connor insists his enthusiasm for management has not been dampened by a disastrous string of results ahead of Saturday's relegation clash with Bolton at Molineux.
Connor has been appointed until the end of the season and collected only one point from five games and seen Wolves concede 16 goals in the process.
But the former Leeds striker is adamant the end of the season will be the right time to judge whether Wolves were right to sack Mick Mccarthy and hand him the managerial reins.
"You will have to ask the football club (owner Steve Morgan) 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 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."
Connor is weighing up whether to risk midfielder Karl Henry against the Trotters.
Henry is back in training after being sidelined for nearly a month with the hamstring injury suffered in the 5-0 setback against Fulham at Craven Cottage.
But Connor is mindful of the danger of putting Henry out of action for another month if he is not 100% ready to return.
"Karl was missing for three to four weeks so we will just see how he is towards the end of the week," he said.
"It is great to have him back training and Karl has been a really important member. But I'll only pick him if it is right to do.
"It will be great to have him back for one game but I don't want to miss him for another four weeks after."
