Mick McCarthy: Ipswich boss 'satisfied with a point'

The Suffolk club are now six points clear of the Championship drop zone with just two games remaining.

Jay Tabb fired Town into a 12th minute lead before Leroy Lita levelled matters just before the hour mark.

And McCarthy said: "There isn't a bad away point in this league.

"We played well enough to be in front by more in the first half but then Dave (Jones) will argue that they've had the better of the second.

"I think he said they had a good goal disallowed but no they didn't and we had one that we thought was over the line but wasn't given.

"So, probably honours even in terms of playing and result and we shouldn't have even bothered.

"I'd have taken a point before we started, instead of kicking lumps out of each other!"

think that puts all doubts over Benteke's quality to bed. Can he do it after receiving the ball to feet, in the box, totally unmarked, on a warm, sunny afternoon in Swindon? Oh yes he can! This year is definitely Liverpool's year. YNWA.

ll very well selling all midfield and strikers but unless we bring anyone in that is better than what we had then it will be a terrible transfer window in my view. Sorted out the defense but our midfield and striker options look very light.

ove it when Jose accuses others of being defensive, cynical and playing to win. If I was Wenger, I'd get that quote laminated and framed - surely the biggest compliment he's ever received from Mourinho. You've got him riled Arsene - you're relevant again!
