Mick salutes Blue Army and happy to go to Norwich on level terms

Mick McCarthy praised the Town fans for creating an electric atmosphere at Portman Road and said he was happy enough to go to Carrow Road on even terms.

Paul Anderson’s second goal of the season cancelled out Jonny Howson’s opener to set up a massive second-leg at Norwich next weekend, with Wembley the prize for the winner. 

“It was a fantastic atmosphere. The hairs on the back of my neck were standing up when we walked out and I’ve not had that for a while to be honest,” the Town boss told the Club website.

“It was electric out there and hopefully there will be more of that to come.

“It was a fair result in the end. We shaded it in the first-half but after 47 games, we had some tired players out there - they did as well. 

“We played well. I’ll take the draw and it sets it up for a great occasion next weekend. We have to go there and win, whether that be in 90 minutes, 120 minutes or penalties.

“Ando was fantastic for us when he went on. He has shown a great attitude, having been in the side, then out for it and I was delighted to see him score.”

The only downside for Blues was an Achilles injury to Luke Varney that will see him miss the rest of the season.
