Mick delighted with win and attitude of players

Mick McCarthy praised the spirit of his players after watching his Town side recover from a half-time deficit to grab a last gasp winner against Huddersfield. 

David McGoldrick cancelled out Danny Ward’s opener, with Dean Gerken saving from James Vaughan’s penalty after Christophe Berra was judged to have pushed the Terriers’ striker before the visitors had scored. 

Daryl Murphy won it for Blues with a close range header on 90 minutes to lift Town within two points of the Play-Offs after a third successive win. 

“Did we deserve it? Probably but it was one of those games that could have gone either way,” the Town boss told the Club website. 

“I don’t think it was a penalty. Vaughan was clever, he knew what he was doing and we got our just rewards with Gerks making the save. 

“We did alright in the first-half but then they scored out of nothing and it changed the game. 

“It was a quality goal from Didz that got us back in it and then a well-worked free-kick to win it. 

“The players showed great character again but then they are a great group. I see that every day at the training ground. People have talked about the points we have dropped from being in front but what about the points we have won from being behind.

“I’m delighted with them and I’m delighted with the result. It takes us within sight of the Play-Off places but my only aim is to finish as high as we can this season.”
