David McGoldrick: Pleased with morale at the club

McGoldrick has found the net eight times for play-off chasing Town this term, coming after he completed a permanent switch from Nottingham Forest in the summer having enjoyed a loan spell over the second half of last season.

The latest of those goals came in Saturday's 2-1 win over Huddersfield, which moved Mick McCarthy's side to within two points of the top six.

"There's a good bunch of lads here and the spirit is fantastic around the place," McGoldrick told the club's official website.

"Even when I first arrived here on loan in January, the mood in the camp was superb and we were fighting relegation at that point.

"We've added good characters and Hunty (Stephen Hunt) is another example of that. He's an experienced guy, he's chirpy around the place and he's slotted in really well with the boys.

"The gaffer and TC (Terry Connor, assistant) have created that environment.

"Obviously we are all serious and down to business when training and on matchdays but they like to have a laugh around the place as well and it's just enjoyable coming into work every day.

"Obviously the results have helped and we've just got to keep pushing on now."

terling needs to be told though that upon entering the Arsenal squad he will re-enact the final scene from Highlander where he will be thrown around a warehouse by cartoon dragons and then be a mere mortal that will only ever spend three to four weeks a season playing football and the rest on the physio's bed. There can be only one.....player available at The Emirates.

Arsenal interest in Sterling

he game changed in our favour when Carrick came on. We were able to play further up the pitch due to having a player who can give and go with the ball and keep possession. Yet barkley made some runs and Townsend scored a good goal but carrick's inclusion and chiellini's withdrawal made the biggest difference to the flow of the game

o, you've not silenced anyone Andros, i'm afraid. We know you can score a great goal, and it's really handy to have your direct running and willingness to shoot on the bench. But until you can do the other things expected of a winger (beat the man, put a decent cross in, stay wide etc) then you can't expect more than a regular cameo. Wonderful goal though, what a hit! No wonder Buffon wanted the shirt.
