It's a challenge for all of us to turn it around says Mick after decisions go against Town

Mick McCarthy was fuming that Town were denied a point at Birmingham when Christophe Berra’s header was ruled out by referee Darren Bond.

The Scotland international headed in from a cross late on but was judged to have fouled Ryan Shotton as Blues went down to a Clayton Donaldson penalty and a Michael Morrison header. 

Adam Webster grabbed his first goal for the Club, with the Berra decision proving critical in the end.

“I disagreed with that decision. Christophe jumped, it was a good header,” the Town boss told Ipswich Player HD.

“Christophe then got barged on the edge of the box. It was more GBH than a foul and the referee doesn’t see it. He was in a good position to see it!

“I can’t do anything about that now though. It’s frustrating but then so was the second goal we gave away. It was an awful goal to concede.

“All three subs made a difference for us and that was one of the positives and we did enough to have got something from the game. 

“It didn’t go for us but we have to make our own luck. We have to turn things around.

“It’s a challenge for all of us now, the players and me. We are looking below us at the moment and that will be a shock for some. They won’t be used to that. We have got to turn it around.”
