We did it the hard way says Mick but boss happy enough as Town move back into the top six

Mick McCarthy admitted Town did it the hard way against Blackpool but got what counted, the three points. 

Freddie Sears’ brace cancelled out Andrea Orlandi’s surprise opener for the visitors, then Henry Cameron levelled for the Seasiders before Christophe Berra won it for Blues seven minutes from time with his sixth goal of the campaign. 

“We did it the hard way and it shouldn't have been but we got the three points and that is all I’m concerned about,” the Town boss told Ipswich Player. 

“It was a sloppy goal from our perspective for their first one but we battered them after that. 

“It was a terrific goal from Freddie, they both were and after half-time, we had chances to go three, four, five in front. 

“Freddie will feel he should have had a hat-trick but then we went to sleep for their second goal. 

“We needed the win and Christophe got it for us. That’s a great return for a defender, six goals this season and it gets us back in the top six. 

“I would have taken a 1-0 win off someone’s backside at this stage of the season though. That’s the way it is with four games to go. It’s all about getting those three points. We didn’t play great but we won. That’s all the counts.”
