Leicester the best team in the Championship says boss

Mick McCarthy says Town are facing the best team in the Championship when Leicester visit Portman Road on Saturday. 

The Foxes have had their most impressive start to a campaign in their history with 10 wins from their first 15 games and sit second in the league behind Burnley. 

“For me, they are the best team in the division,” the Town boss told Ipswich Player. 

“I know that is praise indeed when you see Burnley are top and you look at the players QPR and Wigan have got. 

“I have watched them a few times this season though and they look like a team who are progressing and getting better. 

“They went to Watford recently and bashed them [3-0] and we know what a good team Watford are. They are solid, have a very good goalkeeper in Kasper Schmeichel and they have plenty of firepower. 

“In Andy King and Danny Drinkwater they also have arguably the best central midfield pairing in the Championship.”

Kick-off at Portman Road is 3.00pm with U16 ticket prices for the game at just £1.
