We're a little late on the uptake here so forgive our tardiness, but somehow we managed to miss Mick McCarthy giving one of the finest press conferences of his career after Ipswich's 2-1 win over Burton Albion at the weekend.

The crux of McCarthy's griping was Bersant Celina, the 21-year-old winger on loan from Man City, who emerged off the bench to score a last-minute winner for the Tractor Boys.

Five Things We Learned From Burton

The Liver Bird at related • 0 views
1) Sturridge can still find the net After a lacklustre performance against Burnley, it was nice to see Daniel Sturridge on the scoresheet twice in Burton on Tuesday evening. In the same way that the game acted as a boost for the Reds as a team going into the Spurs game at the weekend, I feel it was also very important for Sturridge to use the game as a platform, he's a confidence striker.

[A]fter a 25-year absence, Newport County returned to the Football League in May with an extraordinary play-off final win over Wrexham. For a club who were wound up, reformed and exiled to Gloucestershire in the intervening years, it is a phenomenal and heart-warming achievement. What's more, they actually look half-decent, and we certainly wouldn't bet against them to carry last season's winning form into League 2 and trouble the top 10.
