Boss suggests that he will 'shake things up' as the Blues look to get back to winning ways after the international break

  • Boss hints at changes
  • Frustrated after poor Blackburn performance
  • Has players 'chomping at the bit'

Mick McCarthy has suggested that he will make changes to his side after the international break, as Town look to get back on track.

The Blues were comfortably beaten by Blackburn at the weekend, with the boss labelling it as the ‘poorest performance’ whilst he’s been in charge.

Despite shouldering much of the responsibility, the gaffer has also hinted that perhaps changes are needed to get the Blues back to winning ways.

“I’ll be having a look at shaking the team up because I need a response,” Mick told Ipswich Player HD.

“We will look at that over the next two weeks or so until our next game against Huddersfield.

“I’m a loyal person and a lot of the time the team has picked itself, because we’ve been so successful.

“But we shouldn’t be getting overrun like we did at Blackburn and we will have to look at that. We were poor at Ewood Park and we need to address that.

“There are players chomping at the bit to get in and I think Brett [Pitman] has been excellent for us and Didz [McGoldrick] has made a difference for us when he’s come on from the bench.

“Tommy Oar’s delivery was excellent in the two games he’s featured [Manchester United and Blackburn] so I’ll have to look at all that.”
