Skipper to lead Blues in thanks to Blue Army after Birmingham game

Carlos Edwards is hoping the Town players can show their appreciation to the Blue Army – over the 90 minutes and after the final whistle against Birmingham on Saturday.

Blues end the home campaign for 2012/13 with a clash against midlanders, who were Mick McCarthy’s first opponents as Town boss back in November. 

Blues have picked up 50 points in the 31 games since Mick has been in charge and another point against Birmingham will be enough to seal Championship football for next term. 

“There are promising signs for the future and if we can secure our position in the division for next term, then I see no reason why we can’t have a good crack at trying to win promotion next year,” the skipper told the Club website.

“First and foremost though we need to make sure we finish the job off and get the points we need to seal our place in the division for next season. 

“I know the Club have planned a lot of activities before kick-off for the youngsters and hopefully we can do our bit on the pitch as well by taking all three points and ensure our fans are smiling come 5pm. 

“The support has been superb this season and we will be showing our appreciation back to the fans come full-time with a walk around the pitch. 

“It will be a lap of appreciation for the supporters for the backing they have given us. We will clap them as a thank you for all their great support.”

Carlos is one of many Town players who has paid to have his children as mascots for the game against Birmingham, with the skipper adding: “I will feel immensely proud to lead the team out holding the hand of my daughter.”
