Edwards Wins Cap But Soca Warriors Lose
Thursday, 7th Feb 2013 09:07
Skipper Carlos Edwards won his 83rd full cap for Trinidad and Tobago overnight but couldn't prevent the Soca Warriors from falling to a 2-0 home defeat to Peru.
The South Americans went in front in the 38th minute via Claudio Pizarro with Rinaldo Cruzado adding the second two minutes from time.
Edwards now faces a long trip back to the UK ahead of Saturday's away game at Blackburn.
In similar circumstances earlier in the season, manager Mick McCarthy chose to rest central defender Tommy Smith after he had been away with New Zealand.

A Plea to Mick: Don't Hold Us Back by Pickersblue22
After nearly four years, we know exactly what we get. Mick McCarthy arrived in November 2012 with the club at a low ebb. He lifted us from a dreary, uninspiring outfit, consistently languishing in mid-table, to the surprising, joyful, wonderful highs of 2014/15.
Far East Anglians by Marcus
I’ve never really liked the term ‘Far East’ as it tends to conjure images of China and Japan rather than the plethora of different countries and cultures in South East Asia. However, for the sake of it, ‘Far East Anglians’ works quite well to indicate Town (and the other lot's) supporters here in Asia.

It's fair to say that despite having no expectations, the start of the season hasn't gone to plan so far for Mick McCarthy. Quite clearly six points from six and progression to the second round of the EFL Cup would have been the aim before a ball was kicked - it's fair to say we've been a little off in that respect.
