Mick salutes players for turnaround over last year

Mick McCarthy paid tribute to his players despite seeing Town denied three points with a last minute equaliser against Charlton.

A Richard Wood own goal put Blues ahead and David McGoldrick had a penalty saved by Ben Alnwick before Johnnie Jackson levelled for the visitors on 90 minutes. 

“On their second-half display, Charlton deserved the point,” the Town boss told the Club website. 

“Considering the awful conditions, it was a very good game and both sides could have had penalties. Their ‘keeper made a great save from Didz from the penalty we did get. 

“If that had gone in, I think it would have killed the game but the save gives them a boost. 

“Yes, we could have had two more points but we are sixth on January 1 and the players deserve a lot of credit for that. They have been fantastic. 

“If you said this time last year that we would be in the Play-Offs come the start of this year then everyone would have taken that.”
