Mick praise for belligerent Blues and outstanding Berra as Town stay in control of Play-Off place

Mick McCarthy hailed the point at Wolves as huge as Town remained in the driving seat for a top six place. 

An own goal from former Town loanee Richard Stearman gave Blues a first-half lead but Benik Afobe levelled for the home side immediately after the break.

“It was a huge point for us and a better point for us than it is for Wolves,” said the Town boss. 

“It keeps us in sixth place and it remains in our hands and that’s vital. 

“Wolves are a good side and they were on top after they scored but we were our usual belligerent, stubborn, hard to beat selves. 

“I told the players that in the dressing-room after the game and I love them for all of those attributes. They are the attributes that help get you promoted.

“We weren’t at our best but we are very hard to beat and that has got us where we are, in sixth and in with a chance of being promoted.”

Mick also paid tribute to Christophe Berra, who was the man of the match over the 90 minutes on his first return to Molineux since leaving two years ago. 

“He probably had a point to prove coming back here and he did that. He was outstanding but then I know what a good footballer he is,” added the boss.
