Ipswich Town boss Mick McCarthy is pleased with the progress made by forward David McGoldrick, as he looks to return to action following a hamstring tear.

The striker is now back working at the club’s training ground after suffering the injury in December, but is still expected to be out until next month.

However, manager McCarthy is pleased with McGoldrick’s progress and is hopeful he will return in time to give himself a shot at making the Republic of Ireland squad for this summer’s European Championships.

“Didz is getting there quickly in terms of his rehab,” the Town boss told the club website.

“It’s a really bad tear but he is back with us now after doing some of his recovery work at home.

“He’s got the target of getting back and playing well and getting in the Republic of Ireland squad for the European Championships in the summer as well. What a carrot that is for anyone.

“We will get the benefits of that as we undoubtedly have to before he can do anything for Ireland and it will be great to have him back when he is ready.”
