Town headed into the game after just one loss in nine games - a run that had seen them pull clear of the drop zone - and McCarthy is happy looking forward on a day that saw his former club Wolves demoted.

"I'm not really bothered about the game," he said. "I think our fans will understand the team I played.

"It gave me the opportunity to have a look at one or two and I'm glad nothing was resting on it - we were worthy of a draw but it didn't happen.

"I feel for all the good people I know that work at Wolves, from the cleaners to the cooks, ground and coaching staff.

"I had a wonderful time there and those are the ones who are really going to be affected.

"But I'm the manager of Ipswich. I'm loving my job. I love what I do. My players have been fabulous. To get 53 points from the games we've had, I can't knock them - it's a fair achievement to end up where we have.

"What we do next year depends on what we do in the summer. Recruitment will be key.

"We've had fabulous support. It's a great club with great support and they accepted that we'd done our job."

ou can't blame De Gea for wanting to leave, he has enough to do in front of goal as it is as well as taking on the role of Man Utd's version of Derek Acorah in trying to contact and organise a defence that isn't there.
