Mick pleased with both sides of Town show at Hillsborough

Mick McCarthy was happy enough with the point after watching Town share the spoils at Sheffield Wednesday. 

Paul Anderson’s second goal of the season was cancelled out by Michail Antonio’s equaliser a minute later, with both sides going on to hit the woodwork.

“I’m delighted with the point,” said the Town boss. “We were excellent in the first-half and had to show a different side to our game in the second-half in terms of defending. 

“We had to be tough and resolute and especially on the back of the second-half at Derby, I thought we were terrific and defended really well. 

“There was  no hangover from Tuesday night and that pleased me obviously but they are a great set of lads. 

“We played some good football in the first-half and were the better side. They came back into the second and like I said, we had to dig in but we did that – and did it well. 

“It’s been a good week. Two away games and points to show from both. It could have been more but that’s football.

“I’m pleased we’ve got the international break now. It’s been a hectic week, with three games and lot of travelling. The players and staff will get a few days off and then we’ll go again for Burnley.”
