Praise for debut boys Tyrone and Jack as season ends in defeat at Burnley

Mick McCarthy had praise for Tyrone Mings and Jack Marriott after Blues ended the season with a defeat at Burnley. 

Goals from Junior Stanislas and Martin Paterson in the second-half gave the Clarets the three points, leaving Town in a 14th place finish in the Championship table.

The Town boss gave Tyrone his debut for the Club at left-back, with Jack coming on as a second-half substitute.

“I thought Tyrone was excellent and I was really pleased with him and Jack did very well when he came on,” said the Town boss. 

“He had a terrific shot and a header at goal as well and it was good to see one of the Academy players in the first-team. 

“I hope the fans understand why I changed the team around, I wanted to have a look at a few different things after achieving our objective last week.

“I thought we were the better side in the first-half but it was a wonder strike, with a bit of a deflection that changed the course of the game. 

“We wanted to finish the season with a win and we certainly deserved something from the game but if I’m honest, I’m not too bothered about the result because we set out to stay up and we’ve done that and I congratulated every player on that achievement after the game.”
