We had the better chances when level says Mick

Mick McCarthy felt Town could have gone on to win the game after Anthony Wordsworth’s equaliser.

Robbie Brady gave Hull a first-half lead from the penalty spot after Guirane N’Daw’s foul on David Meyler but Town were much better after the break and Woody’s first goal for the Club looked to have earned Blues at least a point before Robert Koren’s 83rd minute winner. 

“We weren’t good in the first-half and a good bit of that is down to me,” said the Town boss. 

“We changed the shape to match up with them but they were better at it than us. They got a foothold in the game and then we made a mistake for the penalty, we didn’t track the runner and then gave the foul away. 

“I’ve not seen the penalty again yet but when I look back on decisions the following day, the officials normally get most of them right. 

“We were much better second-half when we went back to 442. It was a good goal from Woody and we created the better chances and could have gone on to win the game. 

“It was a bad goal from our end for their winner though. It wasn’t a great clearance, we have let them get the cross in and then people are not marking who they should be marking and the lad has a free header six yards out.”

Town lost Jay Tabb to a knee injury in the first-half with Mick adding: “He’s got a nasty bang on the knee and it’s sore. We will know more tomorrow on how bad it is.”
