Mick delighted with midfield duo as Town tame Forest

Mick McCarthy felt Town were well worth the three points after Blues moved out of the relegation places with a 3-1 win over Nottingham Forest. 

First goals for the Club from Guirane N’Daw and Luke Hyam and a late strike from Daryl Murphy saw Town home after Dexter Blackstock had levelled for the visitors.

“It was a great result and I think we deserved it. It was a good performance and there are signs of improvement,” the Town boss told Ipswich Player. 

“They scored a good goal to get back level but we responded quickly. I’m not sure if it was a penalty but we will take it and Luke followed up superbly to score when DJ’s kick was saved. 

“The two lads in the middle were excellent. Gi’s goal was a great finish from a yard! He was excellent.  Everyone told me what he couldn’t do when I arrived but he’s been terrific for us. I tried to sign him when I was at Wolves so I know he can play. 

“Luke deserved his man of the match award, even more so for following the ball in and getting his goal. 

“Tyrone Barnett did well for us as well but there were good performances all over the park. If we play like that and work like that, we will win a lot more games this season.”
