Boss looking for same fantastic atmosphere for another massive game

Mick McCarthy is looking for the Blue Army to create the same atmosphere as at the Derby game for tomorrow’s crucial clash against Nottingham Forest. 

Blues could be in the top six at the final whistle on Saturday, with the Club just two points off the Play-Off places. 

Only goal difference separates Town and Forest, with the midlanders slipping from automatic promotion contenders to outside the top six after a run of nine games without a win. 

Forest are set to be backed by one of the biggest away followings at Portman Road this campaign with close on 1200 fans making the trip from Nottingham.     

“Of course, with Nottingham Forest in the shake-up for the Play-Offs as well, it’s another massive game,” writes the Town boss in his column in Saturday's matchday programme.

“They are getting bigger by the game at the moment but that’s what we are in football for, days like this. 

“Forest looked nailed on for the Play-Offs not so long ago but such is life in the Championship, that fortunes can change around very quickly. 

“They’ve got a good squad though and good players and we know it’s going to be tough for us. 

“The fans have a part to play for certain. The atmosphere around the ground on Tuesday night was fantastic. That support really does make a difference.

“It’s exciting times for the football club. We’ve got a chance of that top six place and if we’re all in it together, it can only strengthen those chances.”
