Deserved win as Mick salutes team performance that he feels marks his four years at Portman Road

Mick McCarthy said the performance and win at Hillsborough reflected his four years in charge at Town far more than a couple of displays this season that have brought criticism. 

Luke Chambers grabbed the winner four minutes from time after Tom Lawrence had put Blues ahead with his first goal for the Club.

“It was a good performance from start to finish and we deserved to win,” the Town boss told Ipswich Player HD. 

“It was a professional, disciplined performance. We stopped a good team playing and we carried a real threat ourselves. We had chances all through the game.

“It was a fabulous goal from Tom. We have been going on to him about just needing to add a goal to his game. 

“Bez’s [Christophe Berra] header was going over the stand when Chambo got on the end of it and it was a great way to finish the game. 

“We played 442 and I would have liked to have done that a lot more this season but we have had a lot of injuries and it’s not been possible to do that. 

“We have got players coming back now though and have got more attacking options. That performance and result reflects my four years more than some of the nonsense that has gone on. 

“I thought the fans were great again today. They supported me and the players and it was great to give them something to celebrate on the way home.”
