Big game for players and fans says boss as he looks to Blue Army to rock Portman Road

Mick McCarthy is hoping Portman Road will be rocking on Saturday as Blues look to take another step closer to the Play-Offs. 

Town need four points from tomorrow’s game against Nottingham Forest and Blackburn next weekend to be sure of a top six place but if Wolves and Brentford drop points on
Saturday, a win against Dougie Freedman’s side would seal a Play-Off place. 

“This is a massive game for Ipswich Town and that means all of us, the players, staff and supporters,” the boss told the Club website.

“The supporters have got a part to play on Saturday. Portman Road has been rocking lately and we need that volume turned up even higher against Forest. 

“The support has been fantastic and we need everyone right behind the players as always because we are all in this together. And when you are together, you have always got a chance.” 

The players and staff will be walking around the pitch after the game to show their appreciation for the support received this season. 

A crowd of around 25,000 is expected at Portman Road, with the Club giving out 500 Town flags to youngsters in the East of England Co-op Stand. 

There are also activities on the fieldturf before the game, with Essex County Cricket Club, Fynn Valley Golf Club, Ipswich Hockey Club and the Town’s Advanced Coaching Programme all putting on demonstrations and looking for youngsters to get involved.

There will be a minute's silence before the game to mark the 30th anniversary of the Bradford Fire Disaster.
