PENALTY CHANGED GAME SAYS BOSS

25 October 2014

Mick no arguments over spot-kick as Town see two goal lead disappear

Mick McCarthy had no arguments over the penalty awarded against Town and says it changed the game as Blues were held to a draw by Huddersfield.

Town were two goals up thanks to strikes from Tommy Smith and Christophe Berra when Luke Chambers was judged to have hauled down Grant Holt. 

Nahki Wells scored from the spot and then grabbed an equaliser eight minutes from time. 

“It was a penalty, having seen it on video,” the Town boss told the Club website.

“Holt has been messing our defenders around all game but once you get turned around and you are facing your own goal and you still have your hands on them, it’s going to be a penalty.

“It changed the game but I have to give Huddersfield credit, they played well and deserved the point. 

“It’s very disappointing obviously because we’re two up with 20 minutes to go but let them back in it. Their second goal was from our free-kick as well so that’s frustrating as well. 

“It’s another point on the board but three would have been better.”
