Mick fumes as Nugent makes Blues pay

Mick McCarthy said he’s as angry as he’s been since arriving at Portman Road after seeing his Town side go down to high flying Leicester. 

David McGoldrick gave Blues a second minute lead but two second-half goals from David Nugent gave the Foxes the three points. 

“We were excellent in the first-half and we had two or three chances on top of Didzy’s goal,” the Town boss told Ipswich Player.

“Tunners has had a chance early in the second-half but then we’ve gone and given a very good team a helping hand with their two goals. 

“The first one has come from a very average clearance from their ‘keeper as we closed him down and the second from us having the ball in midfield. There were little errors all the way through that goal. 

“It was a quality finish from Nugent for the first goal and he’s a quality player. He’s played in the Premier League and when the ball has come to him, he has shown that quality to hit the bottom corner when other players would have sent it flying over the bar. 

“I’m as angry and as frustrated as I’ve been since I came here though because the goals we gave away were rubbish. 

“We have matched them in many areas, just as we did Reading, QPR, Wigan. I’m fed up saying that though. I want to win, or at the very least get a point.”
