Stephen Hunt disappointed with final day defeat but delighted to make the Play-Offs and says the opportunity is there to be taken
Stephen Hunt has said it’s now up to Town to ‘grab the opportunity’ after reaching the Play-Offs, where an East Anglian derby against Norwich City awaits.
The midfielder played his part as the Blues secured sixth place in the table, despite a 3-2 defeat at Blackburn, thanks to other results.
It now means Town will face the Canaries, whilst the other semi-final sees Brentford meet Middlesbrough.
“We’re in the Play-Offs and that’s the main thing,” the Irish midfielder told the official Club website.
“We can look back at the season and take plenty of positives from it, although today wasn’t our day on the pitch.
“We threw everything at Blackburn to try and get a result but in the end it doesn’t matter as we are in the Play-Offs and we will start focusing on that now.
“The gaffer has told us well done and now we will look forward to two games against Norwich and trying to eventually get to the Premier League.
“It was a mental day and even up until the final minute we didn’t know what was fully happening, even with our fans cheering, but we are there now and we are all delighted.
“We will be ready to go again next week and it’s up to those who want to grab it now.”
