Brian Barry-Murphy praised the mentality of his players as they scored two late goals to earn a creditable 3-3 draw with Wolves.

City were 2-0 down at the break after a brace by Tawanda Chirewa but we pulled one back early in the second period after a clinical header from Jahmai Simpson-Pusey.

Matty Whittingham restored the two-goal advantage for the visitors with 20 minutes remaining and that’s how it stayed as we headed into injury-time.

Josh Adam pulled one back as the clock ticked down before Matty Warhurst earned us an improbable point right at the death.

Barry-Murphy was thrilled with the colossal comeback.

“I was very pleased with the mentality of the players to keep going in the second half when, I suppose, the cause seemed lost,” said BBM.

“I thought the scoreline at half-time was difficult for us to take because we felt as if we had good chances.


“So overall I was very pleased with the attitude of the players for the full duration and thankfully we got what we felt we deserved at least in the end.”

Barry-Murphy also lifted the lid on what he wanted to see from his players in the second half as they looked to battle back from a difficult two-goal deficit.

“I was very intrigued to see how we would act and react in the second half and if we could step up the intensity to try and play how we did in the first half but with a bit more penetration and create more chances,” added BBM.

“I got pretty much what I wanted in the second half because I wanted the group to look dynamic and aggressive and go for it and not be concerned about losing a third goal.

“I thought we did that and created multiple chances.

“I was very happy in the second half with the chances we created and the fact we took them.”
