McCarthy Targets Play Off Battle

McCarthy Targets Play Off Battle

Paddy McCarthy believes our Carling Cup disappointment could be the perfect preparation for a Play Off battle.

Speaking to the Croydon Guardian Paddy clearly is hoping for big things in the second half of the season as he says.

'Every game has to be a cup final now and we must try to get three points from each, if we can have a run of games with wins on the bounce, that will see us up there or there abouts.'

Our change in fortunes this season from what has happened over the past few years has lifted everybody, and Paddy believes everyone deserves praise for that.

'It has been refreshing for everybody this season, the players are enjoying their football, the coaching staff have been second to none and everyone, including the supporters, are enjoying the journey - but we are selfish people and we want more and more. We are working hard to be the best we can be and that means we want to get to the Premiership sooner rather than later and this club has enough about it to get there.'

Strong words from Paddy there. I think most of us would take a nice midtable finish still, but if we can push on for the play offs...well why not if we can go on a good run?
