Mick McCarthy reflects on a vital moment in his side's season
Mick McCarthy has highlighted last month’s 2-2 draw with now relegated Bolton Wanderers as a pivotal moment in his side’s season.
The Trotters scored a 97th minute penalty at the Macron Stadium despite the Town having gone into a two-goal lead earlier in the match, and it was a result which denied the Blues the chance to jump into the top-six.
“I look back in periods of the season and the Bolton game had a real effect on us, losing the goal in the last minute,” he told Ipswich Player HD.
“If we’d gone away from that winning 2-1, going to Cardiff with a victory and three points in our pocket we’d have all felt better.
“Instead of having three points and potentially going there to get something we ended up with one point out of two away games so certainly from that point it knocked us all I think. In recent terms of how we’re playing, I don’t know why, but it’s for me to deal with."
