That's For Us Fans -Says McCarthy

That's For Us Fans -Says McCarthy

Mick McCarthy was full of praise for the palyers and fans after securing our first home win in 11 games, and a seven month wait, at his first attempt.

The Blues boss told the official site: "It wasn`t pretty, it wasn`t sexy football. It was dogged and determined but that`s what we have to do.

"If we are safe with six games to go, perhaps we will ping it around the pitch then but this league is all about scrapping it out.

"I was pleased that when they scored, we didn`t look like conceding another and that`s not been the case much this season. We went and got a terrific winner as well.

"We had two or three good opportunities in the second-half but we didn`t make them count but they kept at it. I`m pleased for the players.

"The fans were terrific as well. They have not had much to cheer at home lately so I`m delighted for them that we`ve got the three points."

We appreciate the words Mick, and the win even more.
