Ipswich Town manager Mick McCarthy spoke to the press at 1pm today ahead of his side’s Championship clash with Bolton Wanderers, at Portman Road, tomorrow afternoon (3pm ko).

Here you can watch back a previously live broadcast of the Blues boss fielding questions ahead of the visit of the newly-promoted Trotters, a team who are yet to register a league win in seven attempts. Phil Parkinson’s men lost 1-0 at home to Sheffield United in midweek and have a Carabao Cup third round trip top West Ham coming up next Tuesday.

Town won their opening five matches in all competitions, but have now lost three in a row and will be looking to bounce back from last weekend’s 2-1 defeat at QPR.

Summer signings Bersant Celina and Tom Adeyemi both made positive contributions off the bench at Loftus Road and are pushing for their first league starts for the club, while skipper Luke Chambers insists he is ‘genuinely ready’ to return to action following ankle ligament damage.
