Mick will take point but it could have been three

Mick McCarthy was left frustrated after watching Town let slip a winning position at Elland Road. 

David McGoldrick’s 14th goal of the season, after a mistake by Paddy Kenny, put Blues ahead early in the second-half but the lead only lasted four minutes, Ross McCormack levelling for the home side from a penalty after Luke Chambers was judged to have fouled Cameron Stewart. 

“We had the opportunities to win it and we were on top when we scored so it’s frustrating, although I would have taken the point on the way up here,” said the Town boss. 

“It was an ordinary game in  the first-half but we started the second-half well and had chances to score before we did. 

“They will say it was a mistake for Didzy’s goal and we will say it was a mistake for their goal. 

“Chambo says he didn’t touch Stewart for the penalty. I can’t see it on the video but he slid in and gave the referee the opportunity to blow. 

“We had the game by the scruff of the neck at that time but we didn’t hang on to the lead long enough. After that, the game was pretty even but four points from the last two games is a good return.”
