But Mick warns still got a job to do next week as Blues stand on the brink of the Play-Offs

Mick McCarthy praised the impact of his substitutes as Town stayed in control of the Play-Off places with a dramatic win over Nottingham Forest. 

Freddie Sears’ ninth goal for Blues gave Town the win after a Christophe Berra own goal had cancelled out Daryl Murphy’s opener. 

“Of course it’s a massive three points for us but we have to be careful, we have still got work to do,” the Town boss told the Club website. 

“We have to go to Blackburn next week and get something. Someone is going to get slapped on the last day and we’ve got to make sure it’s not us. 

“We don’t want it going down to goal difference. Brentford are capable of scoring three or four goals so we need to make sure we do our jobs and get something out of the game.” 

Luke Varney will miss next week’s game under the terms of his loan from Blackburn and Mick added: “We will miss him because he has been different class since he came to the Club. 

“Reg and our other subs today, Kevin Bru and Ando [Paul Anderson] made a real impact when they went on. Reg almost scored twice, Bru got on the ball for us and Ando was excellent. In the first couple of moments he was on, things happened. He gave us that tempo again. All three of them played a big part in us winning that game.” 

Town currently sit in fifth, a point above Derby, three above Brentford and Wolves with the Bees three adrift on goal difference.
