Ipswich town manager Mick McCarthy is regarded as a legend at Barnsley and he says that manager Danny Wilson will be capable of getting the club out of trouble. Ipswich will be the opponents for Barnsley in the latest match. Their manager McCarthy represented more than 250 matches for Barnsley during his playing career. Both teams come into the match with contrasting fortunes since Barnsley are struggling in the relegation zone, while Ipswich are close to the play-offs.
After being sacked by Wolverhampton Wanderers a few years ago, McCarthy has done extremely well to get his career back on track, as noted by a liverpool fans website. He has said that Barnsley will always be a special place for him, and he took time out to praise the fans, who have always given him a great reception when he has come back to the club. Barnsley are just one place and two points over the foot of the table, while already there is a significant gap developing between them and the prospect of safety. Millwall occupy the final spot outside the relegation zone and they are already six points above Barnsley.
McCarthy has admitted that this is not an easy situation for his former club, but he is confident that they can stay up in the division.
“I would like Barnsley to stay up. They are my home town club. With Danny Wilson as manager they have got every chance of staying up. He has the happy knack of building winning football teams and I am sure he will do that at Barnsley. I just hope this weekend is the exception. I think Dave Flitcroft did a great job last season but the board made the decision they made and I don’t think they could have picked a better man than Danny,” said McCarthy ahead of the meeting between the two clubs.
