Mick praise for comeback but rues goals given away after Town are held by Bristol

Mick McCarthy felt Town had the chances to have won the game against Bristol City but was relieved in the end to take a point.

Ryan Fraser struck five minutes from the end to give Blues a 2-2 draw after City had cancelled out Luke Chambers’ opener with two goals in three minutes.

“We had enough chances to have won but when you are 2-1 down with five minutes to go, you’ll take the point,” the Town boss told Ipswich Player HD. 

“What was pleasing was that having gone a goal down, we responded well and kept going to the end.

“Our subs made a great impact when they went on. I have been looking for that when we make changes and Didz [David McGoldrick] was different class. Brett [Pitman] did great as well. They made a huge difference.

“We have to defend better than we did today though. If we don’t we are not going to do anything. The first goal has taken a big deflection but he shouldn’t have been able to get there. 

“There were mistakes for the second one as well. They were appalling goals to give away but as I said, we responded well and we will take the point and move on.”
