New Date for Derby Trip
Friday, 8th Sep 2017 14:08
Town’s away game against Derby County at Pride Park has been rescheduled for Tuesday 28th November (KO 7.45pm).
The game was originally set to take place next Tuesday but was postponed at short notice last week due to the Rams being a round behind in the Carabao Cup after their first-round match was abandoned.
Speaking about the postponement yesterday, manager Mick McCarthy admitted he wasn’t too disappointed to see the game put back.
“I’m not unduly worried about that, that’s sort of takes another game out when I might have Tommy Smith, Chambo and Webbo back, and Emyr Huws, who knows?” he said.
“Honestly, I was kind of pleased about that, that doesn’t break my heart. We had a real tough start, I know we had good results, but it kind of suits us.
“I feel sorry for fans if they’ve bought tickets or done anything in terms of travel, but I think if you look at the squad at the moment, if we were to go to QPR and get two or three injuries, we’d be going there on Tuesday with 12 or 13 players, which would be bonkers. Suits me fine.”

Unity and Quality by bbg
There is no mistaking the current signs of players, management and administrators all being all on the same page. It is particularly good to see the first-team manager acknowledging the work of the academy coaches in recent days.
Back to the Old Firm by Mullet
That "drive” Mick referred to on Saturday night, was clearly the one from north of the wall not outside his house if today’s news regarding the impending signing of Martyn Waghorn from Rangers is to be believed.
