Ipswich boss Mick McCarthy puts blame on Leicester City's Wes Morgan
Ipswich Town manager Mick McCarthy said he had no sympathy for Leicester City captain Wes Morgan over the incident which cost City the game at Portman Road.
Morgan was visibly incensed about two incidents and, having lost his composure, made a rare error which gifted McCarthy's strugglers the winner with five minutes left.
City boss Nigel Pearson said Morgan had been the victim of an off-the-ball kick by Michael Chopra and then an elbow by substitute Daryl Murphy. But McCarthy said Morgan should have maintained his composure.
"I think, first and foremost, he (Morgan) blocked Chopra by running across the front of him and then there was a tangle of legs," said McCarthy. "Whether Chops caught him or not I don't know.

"That upset the apple cart a bit. I think Chops jumped up with his arms a bit at a corner kick, but didn't make any contact.
"That would be the last of my worries if I was playing against Chops though. I'd be kicking the hell out of him and be making sure he didn't put the ball in the net.
"It got a little bit fractious. There were pushes in both boxes, I'm screaming for fouls, he (Nigel Pearson) is screaming for fouls, there are words between us.
"As a centre-half you have to keep your composure. As a centre-half, I went out with sole intention of upsetting the two strikers I was up against, or anyone who came anywhere near me.
"It's the one that gets upset less. He (Morgan) did and he made a mistake. When all that is going on just boot it out and get a clean sheet.
"I've got sympathy with Nigel (Pearson) but I've got no sympathy with the player. If it was my centre-half, I'd be telling him 'you let them upset you and it's cost us the game'."
