Praise for Bishop and Bru from Mick after Town's draw at Derby

Mick McCarthy was delighted with Town’s second-half display after watching his side take a point at Derby.

Christophe Berra’s third goal of the season from Paul Anderson’s free-kick cancelled out Chris Martin’s first-half goal to leave the honours even at the iPro Stadium.

“We went from awful to awesome in the second-half, well awesome compared to our first-half display anyway,” said the Town boss. 

“We started passing to a blue shirt, that was the main difference in the second-half. We stopped rushing things. Sounds simple but that’s what we did and we created the better chances. 

“We got in good positions and Christophe did great again for his goal. If we put in good deliveries, we have got players to get on the end of them and Ando put in a terrific delivery. He has improved that side of his game no end.

“I would have settled for the point when we scored but like I said, we could have won it but it’s a good point.”

Mick also had praise for Kevin Bru and Teddy Bishop, who were both handed their first Championship starts for Blues. 

“They were outstanding. Kevin is a good technical footballer and Teddy is the same. I was pleased with both of them,” added the boss, who also revealed that Christophe took a knock and could be a doubt for the Scotland squad ahead of their European Championship qualifier against Germany.
