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.”

Very sensible to stay away from the players whilst unwell. Welcome back, onwards & upwards!

I think this coming game will be our game of the season. Appleton has done a lot to hamper our plans of late; and I think the boys will be right up for it and am glad mick will be in the mix!

I keep saying it - Tommy is a good player at this level and potentially a great player for the future. I joked on another thread that we need strikers AND MIDFIELDERS to be competing with him for top goal scorer though!!!

Thankfully, under Mick and Terry, we are seeing the whole team improve one player at a time and for that we are grateful

Agree that it would have been silly for Mick to be around the players whilst infectious
