Carlos Edwards' late winner secured a priceless three points that lifted McCarthy's team four points clear of the relegation zone and put a huge dent in Bolton's play-off aspirations.

Wanderers arrived at Portman Road on the back of five straight league wins, and McCarthy said: "It was a huge result and a great three points. Teams don't come much more in-form than Bolton.

"To be fair, we've done alright against the form teams - we've struggled against the likes of Barnsley, Peterborough and Bristol City.

"I don't know why that should be, but we've certainly progressed. We've got better and become harder to beat.

"We had a really good first half. They had a spell in the second when they got on top, but when we changed our shape and stemmed the tide we deserved to win overall."

irst Townsend, now Chiles. What next ITV? Comedy that you can actually watch without vomiting up your own spleen? I'll be sad to see Matt Smith go though. I actually quite like him. Plus, he was good in Doctor Who.

wful, awful pundit. He was crap on BBC, and offered a little more analysis than Robbie Savage - apart from the delivery of banality in a sexy accent. Also, as I'm Irish he'll never be more then a slimy, hand-balling f**ker in my eyes.
