Mick happy enough with point after conceding Town were below par

Mick McCarthy praised the character of his players after Blues recovered from a goal down to take a point at Bolton.

Medo’s free-kick was cancelled out by David McGoldrick’s sixth goal of the season 17 minutes from time to earn Blues a third successive draw on the road. 

“I’m delighted with the point because it was probably our worst performance away from home this season,” said the Town boss. 

“The game wasn’t good, it was dire at times but we were a goal down and have come away with a point so that’s why I’m pleased with the result. 

“There was probably only two moments of quality in the game, their goal and the one from Didzy. 

“We had players who were below par and Didzy was one of them, certainly in the first-half – but I said to him keep going and you’ll get your chance and he did that and got us a point. 

“Like I said, it was short of the level of performance we have shown this season but the players showed great character yet again to get something out of the game when we’re behind. 

“We had the best chance in the first-half when Tunners had a great effort but give credit to their ‘keeper, it was a fantastic save.”
