Vital Quotes:

Paul Warne – I’ve got a lot of time for Mick McCarthy. He’s a true Yorkshireman who is honest with the press and the fans. He knows the game, wants a hard working side and is probably the most experienced Manager in the Championship. I like the staff at Ipswich, I like the way they play. I think they are a more polished version of us.

Mick McCarthy – Our last two games saw two excellent performances and we will be going to Rotherham hoping for another three points. Players are competitive by nature and the Rotherham players will want to finish on a high which includes beating us.
