McCarthy in line for Ipswich job
Thursday 01 November 2012
Mick McCarthy is expected to be named as the new manager of Ipswich Town this week.
The Championship club, who parted company with Paul Jewell last week, hope to finalise a deal with the former Sunderland and Wolverhampton Wanderers manager before Saturday's trip to Birmingham City.
The 53-year-old, who has also attracted interest from Crystal Palace, has been out of work since being sacked by Wolves in February and looks set to beat off competition from Owen Coyle and Alan Shearer for the role.
Town find themselves adrift at the foot of the table following a 12-match winless sequence and a club record run of 10 league games without a home victory which stretches back to March.
