Mick looking over shoulder but takes the point after stalemate

Mick McCarthy says Town have still got work to do to make sure it’s Championship football next season after the goalless draw against Wolves. 

Blues made it seven games unbeaten but a fifth successive draw in the stalemate against the midlanders, who were denied a late winner by a brilliant save from Bart Bialkowski to keep out Ben Marshall’s free-kick.

“There aren’t many positives to take from the game other than it’s another point,” the Town boss told Ipswich Player HD.

“We didn’t play well and they were the better side in the second-half, not the first though.

“I can’t say a lot about the game because there isn’t a lot to say. We never got going but they are no mugs by the way. They put on a £13m sub in the second-half. They are a good side and I’ve no idea why they are where they are in the league. 

“We know we have a fantastic ‘keeper and he’s made a great save at the end to help us get a point.

“It’s been a tough season and continues to be but we have to keep battling away because we have still got some work to do to make sure we stay in this league.”   

The draw means Town remain nine points above the drop zone.
