Mick says goals the difference as his side look to make history

Mick McCarthy says his side’s start to the season is no ‘flash in the pan’.

The win over Brentford last weekend was Town’s fourth successive League victory at the start of the campaign and equalled a Club record going back to 1974. Three points against Fulham on Saturday will extend that run to five and make history as the first Town side to do that.

“Fulham battered us here last season and they are a very good side so we know what a difficult 90 minutes we have ahead,” writes Mick in his column in Saturday’s matchday programme.

“We have won four on the spin though in the Championship and kept another clean sheet last weekend. I heard someone describe what we have achieved so far as a ‘flash in the pan’. I don’t think it’s a flash in the pan to win four successive games in this league.

“What we have done is taken our chances and we are the leading scorers in the division. If we carry on doing that, we have always got a chance.”

Saturday’s programme also includes a column from Town owner Marcus Evans, Cole Skuse reflects on a changing game, plus there are interviews with Tristan Nydam and Bersant Celina and much more. For Junior Blues, there is a giant poster magazine featuring Dominic Iorfa.
