Boss hopes win can change fortunes at Portman Road over second half of season

Mick McCarthy is hoping Town’s luck will change at home now after watching Luke Chambers give Blues a dramatic last minute win over QPR. 

The skipper headed in Freddie Sears’ cross to follow up Jonathan Douglas’ 77th minute equaliser after Rangers had led at the break through Junior Hoilett’s goal. 

It was Town’s first win at Portman Road since the start of November, with Mick telling Ipswich Player HD: “Hopefully that is the monkey off our back that we needed if that is the right phrase.

“Perhaps we didn’t deserve it but maybe it will change our luck going forward at home. 

“It wasn’t a great game at all. It was pretty turgid and we have played a lot better than that and lost but the result is everything in football.

“It was a fabulous time to score as well. There was no time for them to come back when you score on 90 minutes.  

“Chambo wasn’t having the best of games, he said that himself but he showed the character he has, the character that makes him our skipper to come up with the winning goal. 

“What I love about my team is that they will keep going to the 95th minute. If you’ve got that in your team, you always have a chance.”
