Mick praise for determined Blues as Town end home win drought

Mick McCarthy said he was delighted for the fans after seeing Town win at home in the league for the first time since March.

A goal from DJ Campbell on 86 minutes gave Blues the points against Burnley after Sam Vokes’ header had cancelled out Daryl Murphy’s opener.

“It wasn’t pretty, it wasn’t sexy football. It was dogged and determined but that’s what we have to do,” the Town boss told Ipswich Player.

“If we are safe with six games to go, perhaps we will ping it around the pitch then but this league is all about scrapping it out.

“I was pleased that when they scored, we didn’t look like conceding another and that’s not been the case much this season. We went and got a terrific winner as well.

“We had two or three good opportunities in the second-half but we didn’t make them count but they kept at it. I’m pleased for the players.

“The fans were terrific as well. They have not had much to cheer at home lately so I’m delighted for them that we’ve got the three points.”
