Ipswich Town boss Mick McCarthy was delighted to see his players get a good result in pre-season, along with a clean sheet, he told the the club’s website.
Mick McCarthy was delighted to see his Ipswich side get a 4-0 victory in their pre-season tour in Ireland over Shelbourne, by grabbing a clean sheet along with four goals.
The goals came from Paul Anderson, Tyrone Mings, Jack Marriot and Darren McQueen at Tolka Park.
When asked about the Tractor Boys’ performance, the former Wolves boss responded by saying, “It was a good performance and the lads got a good run out today.”
“We know it’s only pre-season, but I’d rather win games than lose them,” the 55 year old added.
Town were already 2-0 up at half time, thanks to strikes from Paul Anderson and successful trialist Darren McQueen.
McCarthy then went on to say, “It’s nice to win the game, but also it was pleasing to keep a clean sheet and put in a strong performance.”
The Blues kick off their Championship season with a televised game at home to recently relegated Fulham on their home turf, and with the cameras being on Mick’s boys, they will surely be looking to impress as they make another attempt to reach the top six.
