Chances to have won but Mick sees the bigger picture

Mick McCarthy said Town deserved to take all three points against Brentford but was delighted with the performance.

Daryl Murphy gave Blues an early lead but Jonathan Douglas’ header midway through the first-half gave the Bees a point, with Richard Chaplow and Murph both having gilt edged chances to win it for Town. 

“We did enough to win it but I was delighted with the performance,” the Town boss told Ipswich Player.

“I know when you lose, people think you have played badly but we didn’t at Norwich and we certainly didn’t at Leeds. 

“As a manager you have to look beyond the result, you have to look at performances and yes we dropped two points today but it was a good performance against a good team. Maybe it will prove to be crucial point at the end of the season.

“Chappers was disappointed he didn’t score just before half-time and Murph was equally disappointed he didn’t just after half-time but that’s football and he’s been magnificent for us. 

“It’s another point and we just have to keep chipping away towards getting where we want to be.”
