Two or three new additions the target for Mick as Blues win at Cambridge

• Mick targets new additions to squad 
• McGoldrick grabs winner on summer return 
• Maitland-Niles an outstanding talent says boss 

Mick McCarthy is looking to add two or three new faces to his squad before the season gets underway against Brentford on August 8.

The Town boss watched David McGoldrick mark his first taste of pre-season with the winner in a 3-2 victory at Cambridge, with Ainsley Maitland-Niles and Brett Pitman also on target. 

“We played well and certainly showed some quality tonight against a team that I think will do well this season,” Mick told the Club website. 

“It was a great finish by Didz and a great touch by Ainsley to set him up. It was quality that deserved to win the game. 

“Arsenal have a happy knack of producing good young players and Ainsley looks an outstanding talent. He’s a lovely young fella as well and has fitted in well into the squad. 

“We’ve got 15 or so hard-nosed professionals that I can hang my hat on and the two ‘keepers as well and I’m happy with the squad. 

“I was talking to my PA, Fran, earlier today about this season’s team photo and we looked back at last year's. I’m happier where I am now, going into this season than I was this time last year but I’d like to add two or three new faces.”

Mick also confirmed that young defender Matt Clarke is at Portsmouth with a view to joining them on loan.
