IPSWICH Town assistant manager John Gorman has knocked down rumours of disharmony in the squad.

Town got back to winning ways against Nottingham Forest last night with the manager able to name a strong set of substitutes and his players showing a togetherness on the field.

Gorman says this is the case, adding: “I've been in lots of dressing rooms where you can detect there's a problem straight away.

“But that's definitely not the case here. It's a happy ship and those not in the team understand the situation.

“Their professionalism has shone through and everyone at the club is still 100 per cent behind manager Jim Magilton.

“I'm here to help him and proud to be his assistant and proud to be at this club.

“Everyone is so determined and they're busting a gut to put things right.

“Jim can be a strong personality, but we must give credit when it's due.

“And I have no intention of running this club. I am here to help Jim.

“Jim has said that it'll take a huge effort to make the play-offs and, although he's right, it's not impossible. It's all to play for.

“But we've got to continue to apply the finishing touches to our hard work.”

Gorman managed Forest striker Nathan Tyson when they were both at Wycombe Wanderers and he did not need reminding of the threat the front man showed last night.

“We sold Nathan to Forest for �600,000 because we needed the money in January,” added Gorman.

“And the loss of Nathan's goals effectively stopped Wycombe going up.”
