Ipswich Town face newly-relegated Sunderland in a Championship clash at Portman Road tomorrow night (7.45pm ko).

Blues boss Mick McCarthy spoke to the press ahead of that match at lunchtime today and you can re-watch the question and answer session here.

Town lost 3-2 at table-toppers Leeds United on Saturday to slip to seventh in the standings, but there were plenty of positives to take from the performance.

Sunderland, playing outside of the top-flight for the first time in a decade, have made a slow start to life back in the Championship under new boss Simon Grayson.

The Black Cats have just one league win to their name so far, an early 3-1 win at Norwich, and sit in the relegation zone ahead of their 550-mile midweek round trip to Suffolk.

They lost 2-1 at home to Cardiff at the weekend, having already been defeated by Leeds, Barnsley, Sheffield United and Nottingham Forest. They’ve drawn against Derby, Sheffield Wednesday and Hull.

Playing wide right in a fluid front four suits David McGoldrick, says Ipswich Town boss Mick McCarthy.

Rotherham manager Paul Warne is expecting a January bidding war for Ipswich loanee Kieffer Moore.

Mick McCarthy and Callum Connolly have both lavished praise on Blues midfielder Cole Skuse, with the Ipswich Town boss insisting the consistent performer is ‘as good as anybody’.

Danny Rowe still has a future at Ipswich Town, but is free to leave the club on loan in a bid to force his way into Mick McCarthy’s team.

Ipswich Town boss Mick McCarthy has told lead striker Joe Garner not to worry about his mini goal drought and implored him never to lose his fiery edge.
