Mick McCarthy's side have lost just one of their last seven matches and currently lie three points above the relegation zone.

And striker Nouble, who was handed just his second start in the league on Easter Monday, believes the strength in depth at Portman Road will help the Tractor Boys avoid the drop.

"It's good to have competition in the squad," Nouble told the club's website.

"It keeps everybody on their toes, which can only be a good thing, and we have a wide range of strikers at the club, who are all different types of players.

This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.
