Mick delighted with display but just that end product evades Blues ahead of massive week

Mick McCarthy was delighted with the way Town played at Molineux but frustrated at not leaving with the three points the display deserved. 

Brett Pitman was denied by a goalline clearance and a brilliant save from Carl Ikeme in a game where Blues were the dominant force, especially in the first-half. 

“Did we do enough to win the game? Yes we did in terms of the way we played and the fact that we dominated the play,” the Town boss told Ipswich Player HD. 

“I was really pleased with the way we kept the ball and if we had scored first, I think we would have gone on  to win the game comfortably. 

“Their crowd was getting frustrated but that was down to the way we played. It was a good performance but we just lacked that final bit, sticking the ball in the back of the net. 

“We will take the point though and move on. We have two big home games this week and we really need to win both. I said before the game that we needed seven points from nine to still be in the mix.”

Mick expects to be without Daryl Murphy for those games against Charlton and Brentford. The striker is sidelined with a calf injury and the boss added: “The thought process at the moment is that he will miss those games but we will have a look at him.”
