Derby 0 ITFC 1
Last Saturday was the final Championship match and Town won away against Derby.
The previous Saturday Town had beaten MK Dons 3-2 in the last home game at Portman Road.
Town finish in seventh place (5 points behind Sheffield Wednesday).
Well played Town for winning the last two games and finishing the season well. So, Town fell short of the goal to get promotion or at least get into the playoffs. Unfortunately, the team haven’t played to their potential this season. A big plus has been the form of Bartoscz Bialakowski (the goal keeper), who has had a troubled personal year, but has been in great form. Sadly, Murphy and Sears have had a difficult season with not many goals, but it is good to finally see David McGoldrick back playing and scoring.
It really is a very tough league and high level performances are needed week in week out and only Burnley and Middlesborough who are promoted have done this. Relegated, are Bolton and Charlton, both once great clubs, left in turmoil and in need of rebuilding. MK Dons go back down, but they are good enough to challenge for promotion next year, but will need to strengthen.
Town part company with Jay Tabb and Luke Varney and I thank them for their contribution to the team and wish them well. Hopefully, Town will have a good break and come back refreshed and ready to do better again next season!? Probably be playing Norwich again who are on the verge of relegation!
So, Mick and Terry and players, have a good holiday!
COME ON YOU BLUES! 🙂
