MICK VOW: WE’LL GET BACK ON TRACK
IPSWICH Town manager Mick McCarthy has said his side must stick together to get through a difficult run of form.
Going into the weekend’s game against Nottingham Forest, the Tractor Boys had not won in five, recording three draws and two losses.
Ipswich defied the odds last season to finish sixth before losing to local rivals Norwich City in the play-offs.
And McCarthy, 56, is positive they can recover this time around.
“When things are going against you and people are on the turn what you can’t afford to do is turn on each other,” he said.
“You need to stick together and keep playing.We are far from the position we were in three years ago.
“We’ve just got to keep going and be confident that we can turn it around, and I don’t doubt that for one minute.”
Before playing Nottingham Forest, McCarthy’s side had not scored in three games and Daryl Murphy – who hit 27 goals last season – was yet to find the net.
“There are no mugs in the league,” he added.
“We’ve just got to do our damnedest to get back to winning ways.”
