Mick relishing Play-Off race after late win over Rovers

Mick McCarthy reckoned Town deserved the three points against Doncaster and says it's exciting times at Portman Road.

Luke Chambers’ third goal of the season, four minutes from time gave Blues the win after Chris Brown’s penalty had cancelled out Daryl Murphy’s opener. 

“It was a really hard game but I expected that and overall, I think we just about deserved it,” said the Town boss. 

“I said in midweek that I felt Doncaster would stay up. They are always capable of getting something and I thought they had with the penalty. 

“It was a stonewaller, a clumsy challenge from Tyrone [Mings] but he showed great character to go up the other end and have a part to play in the winner – and it was a fantastic finish from Chambo [Luke Chambers]. 

“I know they were unhappy with the winning goal. They thought it was a foul by Luke Hyam. I didn’t think it was at first but I’ve watched it on video and it was. That’s the way it goes. 

“It was great to see that fantastic support as well. That’s what you want in football and the players deserve a lot of credit for that as well. We have been winning games and are right in the race for the Play-Offs. If you are winning games, then people will come and watch. 

“There are four games to go. We’re in with a chance. We could get in the Play-Offs. It could be us. It could be Bournemouth, Brighton. Who knows and if you get in the Play-Offs then anything can happen. It’s exciting times.”
