McCarthy Back at Training
Monday, 4th Feb 2013 18:17
Manager Mick McCarthy was back at Playford Road today after missing Saturday's 4-0 victory over Middlesbrough and having been absent from training for most of last week due to a virus.
McCarthy's assistant Terry Connor was in charge in his absence and said after Saturday's game that his boss expected to be back at work today: " "At the end his message to the team was that they did really well, they performed well and got a good result and he’d see them all on Monday."
Meanwhile, Connor told the club site that he and McCarthy have worked with two-goal central defender Tommy Smith on various facets of his game: "We have spoken to Tommy about his defensive side and improving aspects of his play and he has taken that on board.
“We have also talked about the other end of the pitch. He had chipped in with one or two goals before the weekend and looked a threat. It was great to see him against Middlesbrough turning that threat into goals.”

Harry Was Right (Potter, Not the One From Bath). The Only Thing We Should Fear is Fear Itself by commuterblue
I fear nothing in the play-offs. Some say we struggle against the big teams. Given the disappointing results against our northern neighbours this might seem credible. But, objectively, what do this year's results suggest?
The 21st Minute by pablop
On Easter Monday last year I took my 86-year-old father to his first football match. I had recently moved back from Wiltshire to support my ageing parents. Although not ideal, this did enable me to come to regular home matches having only recently seen Town play at Reading, Bristol or Cardiff and very occasionally at Portman Road.
We Love You and This is the Way We Like It by Pickersblue22
Two games. 180 minutes. That’s all it is. All that stands between us and a place in the top six. Another 180 minutes. The chance of a Wembley final. Possibly against our nearest and not so dearest. It’s all in our hands. We can reach out and touch it. Thirteen years of hurt could be ended. We’re almost there.
Sorry Folks! by stevieiriswattii
For 25 years I have been away from the area and only able to attend a game or so a season, this was after previously being a season ticket holder in the late 80s.
Cole Skuse, In the Middle of Our Pitch by everhopeful
The ball is shifted sideways. There’s space to go forwards, space to meet it, space to shoot. But just as people all around Portman Road begin to lift up in their seats, they realise with an upsetting sense of inevitability – it’s Cole Skuse.
