Boss expecting hard battle against Rotherham United at the weekend with Town boosted by Murphy return to fitness
- Boss says Town will be in for a battle
- Hyam and Gerken remained sidelined
- Murphy returns from injury for Town
Mick McCarthy is preparing his side for what he believes will be ‘one of the toughest tests yet’, when Blues make the trip to Rotherham.
Town face the Millers at the New York Stadium looking to complete a League double over Steve Evans’ side, although Mick anticipates a hard game against a team he expects to comfortably beat the drop this term.
“I’m expecting one of our hardest games of the season at Rotherham,” Mick told Ipswich Player.
“We went and watched them against Bolton and they set off like a whirlwind, winning 4-2 in the end.
“They are a well organised side. They play 442 and they’ve got a few familiar faces in Frazer Richardson, Greenie [Paul Green] and, of course, Conor Sammon so they will know what we are all about.
“They are very workman-like with some good pros in their side. They are bit like us in the sense that they work damned hard and I think it’s going to be a real tough test for us on Saturday.”
