Mick reflects on the good, the bad and the ugly as Town look to end home campaign on a winning note

Mick McCarthy says he is bitterly disappointed at the way Town have slipped away from Play-Off contention in recent weeks but says he will take more positives than negatives from the season.  

Eighth placed Blues complete the home programme against Milton Keynes Dons on Saturday looking to end a run of seven games without a win. 

“When I sit down at the end of the season I’ll look back on the positives and there have been plenty of them this year. More than there have been negatives,” the Town boss told the Club website. 

“We will finish above a lot of clubs who will have spent a lot of money on their squads and there have been some terrific performances this season, at home and away. 

“There has been some good, some bad and some ugly this season and the ugly has come over the last few weeks at home, when we’ve lacked that energy that we had earlier in the year.

“Obviously I’m bitterly disappointed at the way we have fallen away over the last few weeks. We all are - the staff, the players and I know the supporters are as well.

“We haven’t done anything different from last year. We have had injuries to our more creative players and that hasn’t helped but it’s just the last few weeks that have cost us.”

Mick and the players will show their appreciation for the support this season straight after the final whistle against MK Dons.
