Mick praise for both sides of Town's game after hard fought three points at Burton

Mick McCarthy hailed the battling qualities of his team as well as a moment of quality as Town took the points at the Pirelli Stadium.

Martyn Waghorn’s seventh goal of the season cancelled out Ben Turner’s opener before Bersant Celina came off the bench to win it for Blues with a superb free-kick.

“That was the toughest first-half we have had all season and we were lucky to still be level,” the Town boss told iFollow Ipswich.

“The wind made it very difficult and it was hard to get the ball out of our own half.

“The players showed a great willingness to work hard and they put their head in, they put their foot in and that was vital because we had to stay in the game in the first-half.

“We were well below the level of performance we showed against Norwich last week but we found a way to win the game and I’ll take that.

“Waggy was great for us again and obviously Bersant will get the headlines.

“It wasn’t a game for him from the start with balls flying over the heads but he was always going to go on. When the game opens up, I always feel he could do something in the final third.

“It was a terrific free-kick and a terrific celebration as well. Good luck to him. And it was a vital win for us.”
