Ipswich Town take on Middlesbrough, at the Riverside Stadium, in a Championship match tomorrow (3pm).

We broadcast Mick McCarthy’s pre-match press conference live right here, and you can watch it back to hear the Blues boss on all the big issues ahead of tomorrow’s game.

The Blues – who are just three points off the play-off places – are looking to make it three successive victories following impressive wins against Derby (1-0 away) and Nottingham Forest (4-2 at home) last week.

Big-spending Boro, among the pre-season promotion favourites following relegation from the Premier League, are two places and three points further back in the table (9th).

Garry Monk’s side have lost three of their last four matches – 2-1 at Leeds, 3-0 at Derby and 2-1 at home to Bristol City.

Ipswich Town kitman James Pullen is calling on Blues fans to pay tribute to much-loved club stalwart Dick Parker with a minute’s applause this weekend.

Jonas Axeldal may have never achieved anything like hero status at Ipswich Town, but the Swedish striker had already made his mark on football before he arrived at Portman Road.

Ipswich Town fans have been reacting to news that owner Marcus Evans could be ready to spend in January, even though the club’s debt has increased to £89m.

Ipswich Town finance director Mark Andrews insists owner Marcus Evans remains ‘in it for the long haul’ after the latest set of accounts were revealed at last night’s PLC AGM, adding there could well be money for transfers in January.

Ipswich Town’s managing director last night criticised the “unwarranted personal abuse” suffered by manager Mick McCarthy and players from fans and the media this season.
