Boss praises the support from the fans against Newcastle and wants more of the same going forward

Mick McCarthy believes Portman Road flourished during Town’s 3-1 win over Newcastle on Monday and wants the stadium 'bouncing' once again.

The Blues put on a fine display in front of a jubilant home crowd, as Freddie Sears, David McGoldrick and Emyr Huws all found the net to secure all three points.

“It’s been a bit nervy for a while and that’s transmitted to the crowd,” the boss told the official Club website. 

“But the atmosphere against Newcastle was fabulous.

“That’s how you do it on a day like that, in front of 25,000 we were exciting and entertained the crowd, we made them feel happy.

“We had those sort of attendances for a while when we finished in the top six and my aim is to get the place bouncing like that again.”
