PLAYER REACTION: Luke Chambers left disappointed

18:31 19 January 2013

Ipswich v Barnsley: Blues defender Luke Chambers cut a frustrated figure, following Ipswich Town’s 1-1 draw at home to struggling Barnsley, today.

Chambers had given the hosts a 56th-minute lead with a close range effort but teenage substitute Danny Rose broke Ipswich’s hearts with an 89th-minute equaliser - the striker stooping low to head home at the near post from a Tom Kennedy corner.

The visitors missed a number of good chances, especially in the first half, with Marlon Harewood hitting the post in one of three first half opportunities for the veteran striker.

After the game, Chambers who missed also a gilt-edged chance in the first half, said: “We didn’t play as well as we have done in recent weeks.”

“It’s a disappointing result, you have got to win your home games, but we will dust ourselves down and we have a week to prepare for the game at Bristol City on Saturday.”


  • Another illuminating comment from Ged Scott or is it Rob Steroo? Have just looked at the EDP website and surprise surprise there are some budgie loving comments from Ged Steroo !!! and Liz Knott !!! - do they sound familiar??? Pity they do not pay more attention to their own team that are falling faster than a budgies droppings - looking pretty much the same as well.

  • Good game by Chambers on saturday. He really is one the successful signings to date. Hopefully some others will step up.

  • You left disappointed chambers, what do you think the fans think on a mighty cold day watching that crap and spending their hard earned money??? Maccarthys is just another jewell or keane his only priority is looking at old loaned cast-offs from other teams - pathetic!!!

  • My question would be that why wasn't there a defender on the near post for the corner? Had there been they surely would have cleared ball away, resulting in a 1-0 win.

  • @Paul Markham it's all down to coaching or lack of but you are correct with some experience from some of our defenders there should have been someone on the near post. Could you see Mick Mills allowing such shoddy defensive positioning ?

  • He scored a goal, but remains a part of quite a shaky looking defence - if the defence had done their job properly then we would have won 1-0

  • Watched their goal several times on the box, our defense was a shambles. Even giving away a corner so near the end was inexcusable.
