Ipswich Boss McCarthy "We owe the fans a performance" ahead of Norwich Game

Ipswich boss Mick McCarthy is keen to secure a first East Anglian derby victory when Norwich visit Portman Road on Sunday.

McCarthy has never managed to claim a win over the Canaries during his time as Ipswich boss, having drawn three and lost three in six previous meetings.

"I was asked this morning ‘does it rankle that I’ve not beaten them yet?’,” said McCarthy, as reported by The Pink Un. “Trust me, I don’t carry every result around of who I’ve not beaten.

"But, bearing in mind it’s a while since we’ve won this derby and we lost our last home game to Bristol City, I think we do owe the fans a performance. It would be pivotal to win.

"All I know is they’ll see me in a really good light if we win. Let’s leave it at that shall we?

"It’s not just three points in terms of what it means to everybody, but I’ve never been given four points for winning one.

"I’m not stupid, I picked up what it means to everyone ahead of the first time we played them. I’ve been in the game long enough to know what derbies mean to everyone."
