Mick McCarthy wants 'more of the same' from his Town squad this evening as the Blues look to claim another home win
Mick McCarthy admits he will be hoping for a repeat performance of Saturday’s win over Middlesbrough from his players, as Yeovil visit Portman Road this evening (kick-off 7.45pm).
The Blues came from behind to beat Tony Mowbray’s men at the weekend, with David McGoldrick scoring either side of a Luke Chambers header.
Whilst the manager was pleased with what was a solid team display, the performance of striker McGoldrick brought about extra praise from the Town boss.
“David’s a good player, an excellent player in fact and I’m delighted that we’ve got him at this football Club,” Mick told the Club’s official YouTube channel.
“He scored two great goals and really contributed to a fine team performance at the weekend.
“Of course we will be looking for more of the same but we had that against Middlesbrough anyway, the only difference was on Saturday we backed the performance up with goals and, ultimately, points.
“But listen, we’ve had a good performance and a good result against Middlesbrough but I’m not starting to cool off because we’ve got a real tough game against Yeovil now.”
Town have no fresh injury worries ahead of tonight’s clash with the Glovers, with only Tyrone Mings sidelined as he continues his recovery from a knee ligament injury. Daryl Murphy will be pushing for a start after impressing from the bench against Middlesbrough.
Yeovil boss Gary Johnson will be forced to make a change to his defence, after Bryon Webster was sent off against Sheffield Wednesday last time out, with Bristol City loanee Liam Fontaine expected to replace him. Striker Paddy Madden and ‘keeper Marek Stech are both ruled out through injury.
