Mick happy to take the point though but Bish adds to injury woes

Mick McCarthy conceded his team were far from their best and was happy enough to take the point against QPR.

In a game of few chances, Bersant Celina went close with a free-kick for Blues, while both teams had penalty claims in the latter stages of the 90 minutes.

“We played nowhere near the level we have done at home so I’ll take the point,” the Town boss told iFollow Ipswich.

“They are a capable team. It was a horrible, turgid scrap but we have not had many of those games this season and you get them, it’s football.

“We could have had a penalty at the end and so could they. Joe headed it and it’s handball and if we had scored, it would have changed the complexity of the game and maybe they wouldn’t have been in the situation to get their penalty shout but it doesn’t matter now because the ref was consistent and didn’t give either.

“It was a fair result in the end. I’m not happy about our performance but the positive is that we didn’t lose it.”

Town’s injury woes continued though with Teddy Bishop limping off before half-time with a hamstring problem.

“It’s ridiculous the numbers of injuries we have in midfield. Bish has a hamstring now and that won’t be a week out for sure.

“It’s so disappointing for all of us because the lads all love him but it’s particularly devastating for him.”
