Former Sunderland manager Mick McCarthy has been managing Ipswich Town since back in 2012, and they are Newcastle’s opponents tomorrow afternoon at St. James’ Park.
Mick has given his press conference for the game tomorrow and he has said Ipswich will try to put a stop to Newcastle’s good run.
Mick McCarthy – Ipswich manager
We have won our last four games and in the last 13 games in all competitions we have won nine of them.
Here’s what Mick said about the game tomorrow:
“We are going to the league leaders and arguably the best squad, best team, one of the best stadiums.”
“You know Newcastle shouldn’t be in the Championship.” “That is full stop.” “And the way they are going, they won’t be.”
“But we are going up there to try and put a stop to it.” “They have got their act together from the start, after two defeats on the bounce.”
“They’ve beaten Norwich, Brentford, but they will not be rubbing their hands thinking we are going up there.”
“They certainly know it won’t be easy.”
Here’s our record over the last 13 games in all competitions since our two defeats to start off the season.
Mick’s right that Rafa has the players prepared for every single game and we know it will not be an easy game against Ipswich, who have the best defensive record in the division and conceded only 9 goals.
They could well frustrate Newcastle tomorrow afternoon.
But we are playing well at the moment and as long as our defense is solid we may need only one goal to get all 3 points tomorrow – and another win is the target.
Howay The Lads!!
