Players recovered so strongly after early setback says Mick

Mick McCarthy hailed Town’s response after conceding an early goal as fantastic as Blues recorded the biggest win of the season against Leeds.

Daryl Murphy struck twice, with a penalty from David McGoldrick and tap in from Christophe Berra giving Town a 4-1 win after the Whites had opened the scoring inside four minutes.

“We got caught cold early on but it was fantastic response from the players to come back so strongly,” the Town boss told the Club website.

“It was important to get back level very quickly and we deserved it. The penalty was a penalty. It was a silly challenge. It was great Didzy getting his goal and then Murph gets another one just before the break.

“The most important goal was the fourth. That nailed the game because if they had scored at 3-1, the momentum could have shifted. 

“It was outstanding performance in the end and it was nice not to be standing there in the last minute on edge.

“I admired the players in the way they went about things. We could have had more goals and we kept things tight. 

“Was it our best performance of the season? Probably for a number of reasons and it’s great to see us second in the table. That’s where we want to stay, in the top two.”
