Town coach was the hero of Swansea’s last play-off success

IPSWICH Town coach Sean McCarthy will be taking a big interest in Swansea City’s progress in this season Championship play-offs.

In 1988 he scored the goals that led the Welsh club to their only play-off success, scoring in both semi-final legs against Rotherham and in both legs of the final against Torquay.

The Swans beat Rotherham 1-0 at home and drew 1-1 away before beating Torquay 2-1 at home and drawing 3-3 away.
