Jody Puts Merlin In Spotlight

Jody Puts Merlin In Spotlight

Jody Craddock has highlighted the instant impact Mick McCarthy has had on the club, as a key factor in turning those dismal home draws in to wins.

'I think the new manager, new ways, new training is all part and parcel of the big picture. We've got a couple of new players in and I just put it down to how the manager has come in and worked with the boys." He told the Post following the weekends 1-0 victory against Luton Town.

Prior to that, Luton had scored in every game this year, right back to January , and the captain was rightly proud of the back line`s performance.

'I think it's another great result, a clean sheet and nicking a goal at the other end we can't really ask for any more,' he added

'We like to get in teams' faces and get a tackle in but once we've done that we'll put our foot on the ball and pass it around.

'Under pressure the boys can still pass the ball around well which we did last season, and got on top of teams, but at times we just didn't get in their faces enough which cost us. It's still early days but it's a great start and we should be really pleased with ourselves.'

Historically, now would be the time for fans to ramp up the expectation. A play off slot at any point in a season earmarked for rebuilding is an achievement in itself. But Jody is eager to make sure that everyone stays level headed regarding the current league position.

'We're not going to lose our heads. We're not going to think we've got everything sorted, of course we're not, there's still 41 games left. We've just got to look at each game as it comes and play each one like we did against Luton and perform how we can. It's going to be tough, it's about keeping players fit and a big strong squad together.'
