Marcus praise for fans and progress made on pitch ahead of 'big as they come' game this weekend

Marcus Evans has sent a message of thanks to the Blue Army and has saluted the progress made by Mick McCarthy’s team this season.  

Town’s owner has written a column in Saturday’s matchday programme and is leading the backing for Blues ahead of the crucial Championship game against Nottingham Forest at Portman Road. 

Four points from the remaining two games - Forest and Blackburn next week - would book Blues a top six place for the first time in 10 years and with it a Play-Off berth. 

If Brentford and Wolves fail to get at least a point on Saturday, a draw against Forest would be enough to secure a Play-Off spot.   

“Another year of progress doesn’t really do justice to this season’s performance, but we have come to expect so much more from our team week in, week out that it’s worth reminding ourselves of just how far we have moved forward over the last two years,” writes Marcus in the programme. 

“Saturday’s game is as big as they come, hopefully to be followed by some even bigger ones! Let’s cheer the boys over the line.

“A big thanks to all of you for your wonderful support this season and for helping make Portman Road a fortress, with only three defeats in 22 Championship matches, a record that is equal to any club in the division. 

“I know from talking with the players how big an influence your support has been at critical times in matches. Your backing, aligned with an increase in season ticket sales for next year, is a huge positive for the Club.”
