Mick pays tribute to goalscorers and claims an 'assist' in 'big win' for Town

Mick McCarthy paid tribute to goalscorers Freddie Sears and Tyrone Mings as Town moved up to third in the Championship table with victory over Birmingham. 

Freddie scored his first goals at Portman Road, Tyrone his first ever goal and Kevin Bru also got on the scoresheet with his first goal for Blues in a 4-2 win.

“It was a big three points and an entertaining game, sometimes for the wrong reasons,” the Town boss told the Club website. 

“We kept giving them hope but it’s the result that counts. It’s always the result that counts but even more so at this stage of the season. We just have to keep ticking them off. 

“I’ll claim an assist for the first goal. I was screaming for Ty to go up for the corner. Sometimes you look a chump when you say that but when it works you might as well take the credit so I’m claiming it!

“He’s a real threat in the air, Ty. He’s a big lad and it was a terrific goal.

“Freddie was a real threat for us and deserved his goals. He’s got a turn of pace and showed a great touch to get away for the second goal. He’s hard to mark and he gives us something different.”

The only downside for Town was an injury to Cole Skuse, who was forced off in the first-half. 

“It was a back spasm and it's not like him to come off,” added the Town boss.

“It could be a day or two, it could be a week. We will know more tomorrow.”
