McCarthy's 'pride' for Ipswich players despite play-off loss

Ipswich Town manager Mick McCarthy said he was proud of what his players achieved despite losing their Championship play-off semi-final to East Anglian rivals Norwich City.

A Wes Hoolahan penalty, plus goals from Nathan Redmond and Cameron Jerome ended the Blues' hopes of reaching Wembley. Tommy Smith's equaliser gave them brief hope at Carrow Road.

Christophe Berra saw red after handling on the goal line which led to City's penalty, although McCarthy felt his team should have won a spot kick when Teddy Bishop tumbled in the Norwich box in the first half.

But Norwich ran out 3-1 winners on the day and 4-2 on aggregate, to face Middlesbrough on Bank Holiday Monday.

Hear Mick McCarthy's thoughts after his team's 3-1 loss to Norwich City in the Championship play-off semi-final 2nd leg.
