Coach Terry on aiming for success alongside 'opposite' Mick

Terry Connor says he and Mick McCarthy could not be more different but they have the same goal – to bring success to Ipswich Town.

The former Brighton and Leeds striker worked with Mick at Wolves and is now the boss’ assistant at Portman Road.

Speaking in the first of a two part interview in Saturday’s matchday programme Terry says: “I knew Mick as a player. I played against him through the years and then obviously I was aware of his reputation as a manager but it was at Wolves that we first worked together. 

“He arrived at Molineux in 2006 and I will always be grateful to him because he gave me a chance to stay at the club and work with him and as things progressed, we had some success together – as we’d obviously like to have here.  

“Myself and Mick could not be more different though – not only in size and colour – but in our outlook on things but for some reason we seem to gel together. 

“We want the same things. We go about them in different ways but we have the same goal as I said and I think that works in a nice balance.”
