Mick proud of players but disappointed at missing out on top six

Mick McCarthy said it’s small margins that have cost Town a place in the top six this season. 

The Blues’ boss watched his side go down at already promoted Burnley by a single goal and felt that summed up why Blues missed out on the Play-Offs. 

“It was a good performance today and when they scored we were on top,” said the Town boss. 

“They started better than us but we grew into the game and had chances but then we made an error, they had Johnny on the Spot in Michael Kightly to put the ball in net and that cost us. 

“That changes the course of games and while I’m very proud of my players and what we have achieved this season, I’m disappointed we have not made that top six. 

“We’ve come a long way when you think that we came here last season for the last game only having just stayed up the game before and today we came here with a chance of getting in the Play-Offs. 

“It’s been fine margins between us being in the top six and just missing out.  It’s been those chances we’ve had that we have not taken and the mistakes we have made, like today, that have ended up in the back of the net. 

“The players deserve a lot of credit for what we have achieved this season but I’m still left with disappointment – we all are – because I felt we could have finished in the top six.”
