Following today’s clash between Ipswich Town and Wolverhampton Wanderers, here are the instant reactions from both managers.

Ipswich Town hosted Wolverhampton Wanderers at Portman Road on Saturday January 27, with the visitors taking a one nil victory following Matt Doherty’s 15th minute header.

The victory put Wolves 12 points clear at the top of the Championship and they did have opportunities to increase their lead, although it’s far to say Ipswich’s Martyn Waghorn will feel he should’ve done better with his effort that hit the side netting.

Speaking to the BBC’s cameras a short time after match day referee Simon Hooper blew the final whistle, Ipswich manager Mick McCarthy explained.

‘I’m always disappointed when we lose of course, but I can’t really argue with the result. They are a very good side but I can’t argue with my lads or complain at them for the effort and application that they give. Could we be better at times, quality with the ball? Yeah, but they give me and they give this club everything every week so I’ll settle for that.’

Wolves head coach Nuno Espirito Santo in his comparative interview explained.

‘I don’t look at the league table, I look game by game. It was important for us but the next game is in our minds now. We have to realise where we are and be happy about that but at the same time have this sense that we still have a long way to go. I think the goalie of Ipswich was one of the best men on the pitch, that says a lot of how many situations we created.’
