Belief is there we can make Play-Offs says boss

Mick McCarthy is happy with the progress Town have made this season as he targets the Play-Offs. 

Blues travel to the Keepmoat Stadium today to take on Doncaster in the first of three games in a week, with Bournemouth and Charlton to follow. 

Town sit on the brink of the top six places, just three points adrift and Mick sees that as the realistic target for his team. 

“We are doing okay at the moment. We have made massive strides since last season when I compare the performances against Watford,” Mick told the Club website.

“It’s an important time, the Christmas games. There are a lot of points up for grabs and that can take you up or down the table very quickly.

“We are on the edge of the Play-Offs and we all believe we can get there. That’s the target for all of us.

“We may not be getting the press coverage of a club pushing for the Play-Offs but the other clubs will know we are organised, hard to beat and are in there on the fringes of the Play-Offs and capable of getting there.”

Team news
Stephen Hunt misses out with a hamstring injury, Anthony Wordsworth has a bug and Sylvan Ebanks-Blake is not match fit yet but the rest of the squad have travelled to the Keepmoat. 

For Doncaster Chris Brown and Paul Quinn are both doubts with hamstring injuries, with James Coppinger and Billy Paynter also concerns.
