Mick looking to avoid on-going theme but praise for goalscorer Didzy

Mick McCarthy says he doesn’t want to be making a habit of saying Town played well but without reward. 

Blues were on top for much of the first-half after David McGoldrick’s 11th minute strike but goals from Luke Varney and Ross McCormack, after a mistake by Scott Loach, gave Leeds the points at Portman Road. 

“We were excellent in the first-half but there is a reoccurring theme here and I don’t want to be coming out after games and saying we played well but got beat,” the Town boss told the Club website. 

“The deflection for their first goal has fallen lucky for Varney but the second goal is a mistake by Loachy.

“We could have done better defending in front of him. We have given McCormack too much space but those little errors can be paved over if Loachy saves it. He came into the dressing-room and ‘coughed up’ straightaway. It’s just one of those unfortunate things. 

“Didzy was terrific for us. He scored an excellent goal and that’s important because while his performances have been first class, he’s a striker and strikers need goals.”
