McCarthy oversaw his first match in charge on home soil on Saturday as Town triumphed 2-1 over Burnley, having taken three points from his opening two games at the helm - both on the road.

It was a moment to savour for Ipswich fans, who had gone more than seven months without seeing a victory at Portman Road - the last of which being a 1-0 success over Barnsley on March 31.

"It's lovely for them," McCarthy said. "They want something to shout about and support and we all want to feel how I feel now, which is nice and happy.

"I'm delighted for them because it's such a nice club and the supporters are great."

Meanwhile, McCarthy is waiting to discover whether a loan extension can be agreed with Leicester for Richie Wellens. The midfielder's one-month stay expired after the win over Burnley and the decision now lies with Foxes boss Nigel Pearson.

ah, Fergie is just having another pop at Rooney. He just wants to put him down whenever he gets a chance. Rooney is by far the best English player. Carrick is not far behind, mind. However, by elevating Carrick like that, Sir is having a dig at Wayne. Fergie is well-known for mind games like that. Good to see he's still feisty.
