Mick praise for Noel and Freddie as Blues' flying start proves decisive at the Den

Mick McCarthy was understandably delighted with the performance and win against Millwall that lifted Blues back into the automatic promotion places. 

Noel Hunt struck twice in the first 15 minutes and Jonathan Parr added a third in the second-half to give Town a 3-1 win at the New Den. 

“It was a good performance and a good win,” said the Town boss.

“It was always going to be a tough for us today, maybe tougher because of what happened in midweek for them [lost 4-0 to Bradford]. 

“They started off at a real pace but the goals in the first 15 minutes or so took the sting out of them. 

“I didn’t put Jonny Parr on to score a third goal but I’m delighted he did! It opened up for him and he took it really well. That gave us a bit of breathing space at the end. 

“Noel Hunt did great for us. I was delighted to get him on loan and even more so when we signed him on a deal. 

“Freddie Sears was terrific when he went on as well. He’s going to be a good asset for us.”
