Mick looking to carry on momentum until end of the season after coming though testing run unbeaten

Mick McCarthy has challenged the players to keep the momentum going over the rest of the season after his side held Play-Off chasing Norwich to a draw at Carrow Road. 

Blues made it five games unbeaten with Jonas Knudsen on target just past the hour before Jacob Murphy levelled for the Canaries six minutes later. 

The draw meant Town have come through a testing fixture list in February unscathed but Blues’ boss told Ipswich Player HD: “It’s another step in the right direction and it’s about keeping that going now.

“We’ve had a good month but we’ve got to keep our foot on the gas. We’ve got Brentford next week and we have to put in the same level of performance that we have shown over the last four or five weeks. 

“It was another good point for us today against a good team who have just come down from the Premier League. 

“Jonas knows how to adhere himself to the fans, scoring in both derbies this season and I hope that performance adheres us to the supporters a bit more. 

“They’ve had a tough time, watching not particularly good football or good results. I think that result and performance has gone a long way to repairing that today. 

“We’ve got to keep going right to the end of the season. Our relationship with the fans is really important and we’ve got to build on that for next year so people feel good about us and about the Club.”

Mick paid tribute to man of the match, Bart Bialkowski, saying: He deserved the award. He was outstanding and made three or four top class saves. 

“He was annoyed with their goal but he won’t get any complaints from me.”
