Awful game conceded Mick but draw takes Blues step closer to top six figure

Mick McCarthy conceded it was an awful game against Wigan but looked at it as another point towards the 75 that should clinch Town a place in the top six. 

Jay Tabb had the best chance in a game of few openings at a freezing Portman Road, firing over in the first-half.

“It was an awful game from start to finish,” the Town boss told Ipswich Player.

“The conditions didn’t help. It was windy, snowy, freezing, the pitch was cutting up and we couldn’t get up a head of steam. 

“When you look at their team though, they have got some very good players, players who have cost millions and they should be in the top six. 

“They made it difficult for us but I take it as a good point for us. We didn’t play well and it was one of those days. Supporters see us in the top four and them in the bottom three and think it will be an easy one but I as said earlier, the team they have should be in the Play-Off places.

“You are probably looking at 75 points to get you in the top six, so it’s another point towards that target.”
