Mick McCarthy: Players buying into work ethic

Town went to the runaway leaders on the back of successive defeats but became the first Championship side to deny Cardiff a goal as the game finished 0-0.

The visitors might even have nicked it at the end as Frank Nouble missed a chance, but McCarthy said: "It was probably a fair result overall. I would have taken it before and I'm happy with it now.

"We always work hard every week. We get our stats and we work as hard if not harder than everyone else and they really have bought into that team shape. They've bought into everything I've tried to do.

"I tried to make us organised and hard to beat and if you work as hard if not harder than everyone else than you'll have a chance."

Ipswich are now six points clear of the bottom three, but the manager said: "I'm still looking behind me. Whatever we've done so far it can change so quickly. We'd lost two on the bounce and I didn't want to lose three league games on the bounce."

e'll be fine, no problem. If they do get relegated, he's definitely going to ask how anyone could ever have thought that Villa were going to be fine given their problems before he came.

toke though. Hmn. I don't think it was defending that made people dislike Stoke so much as the out and out cheating/nastiness they regularly displayed. That, and they kept buying the odd flair player and then ruining them (Oh! Tuncay, what were you thinking?).

ell that really inspires me with confidence. No point in training, deciding on a coherent formation, or playing players in their best positions, let's just hope we get lucky.
