Mick praise for youngsters and reveals he is hoping to land Liam on permanent deal

Mick McCarthy was delighted to see Town finish the season on a high after a win at Play-Off bound Derby. 

David McGoldrick’s penalty, after Teddy Bishop had been fouled, proved the difference with the win leaving Blues just one place shy of the top six. 

“It has been a very positive end to the season and I’m delighted with that,” the Town boss told Ipswich Player HD.

“To come to a place like Derby and win says something about the players here. It was a definite penalty and we saw the quality we have missed with Bish and Didz out there. We have not really bemoaned the injured players we have missed but it’s clear what qualities they bring to the side.

“Myles Kenlock was excellent against two really good wide players and he saw them both off. Myles and Josh Emmanuel coming into the team and doing as well as they have done have been more positives for us to take into next season. Adam McDonnell did well on his League debut as well.”

Mick added that he is hoping to sign Liam Feeney on a permanent deal in the summer but that Ben Pringle will be returning to Fulham. 

Liam, who has been on loan from Bolton since March, is a free agent with the boss saying: “We are talking to Liam and his agent. He would like to stay with us and we want him to stay so that is a good start. 

“Prings has a year left on his contract and will be going back to Fulham.”
