Mick McCarthy: Ipswich now four points clear of drop zone

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."

hould have stayed because we carried him for 6.5 years. And then he has a breakthrough season, and was gone soon after. MU fans, you would be as disgusted had C Ronaldo left in 2007 and not 2009.

ood grief. Someone guessed that the form English player at the moment might be in his national side with some other players? And that's espionage? Now if they discovered that Emile Heskey was going to be in the starting line up.... at right back.... THAT would be espionage. Give it a rest Roy.
