Mick McCarthy is insisting that Ipswich Town are not yet safe from relegation, according to the Sudbury Mercury.

Ipswich Town are currently 9 points ahead of Bristol City, who occupy that final spot in the relegation zone.

And after five consecutive draws, Ipswich have sunk to 16th in the league.

Speaking after the 0-0 draw with Wolverhampton Wanderers, McCarthy was asked about Ipswich Town’s seven game unbeaten run and he said:

“Thank goodness.

“If I look back everybody was looking upon things with increased trepidation and fear.

“I said at the time we’d probably go and play well in those games and we’ve picked up some good points.

“It’s just as well we have.”

On the subject of whether the Tractor Boys are safe yet, McCarthy added:

“No, I think we’ve still got a bit to do.

I think we’ve got to scrap it out.

We’ve got 10 games to play – we’ve got to play better than that.”
