Choice of Sammon for Mick

MICK McCARTHY is confident that Ireland man Conor Sammon will deliver goals for Ipswich Town following his move from Derby County.

Sammon is in line for his full debut away to Birmingham tonight and McCarty has faith in the Dubliner. "He will be a good player for us - I'm delighted to have got him," said McCarthy.

"I actually think the way we play will suit him. I think he'll get goals with us. He'll give us plenty, that's for sure.

"Conor is somebody I have liked for a while. You never just sign somebody you have seen a week before - there is always a mutual respect.

"He's a really good person as well, which fits into our squad. I believe, even before me, Paul Jewell was looking at him.

"He's finally ended up here, let's hope he's a success for us," he added.
