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.

  • 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.

Ipswich Town boss Mick McCarthy says he didn’t even know owner Marcus Evans was in attendance at the John Smith’s Stadium this afternoon as the Blues lost 2-0 to Huddersfield Town.

Throughout the years, Ipswich Town Football Club has been graced with a selection of legendary managers and a selection of forgettable ones. Do you know who was at the helm at Portman Road when Ipswich Town took on Crystal Palace in 1971?

Ipswich Town boss Mick McCarthy has confirmed that the club is set to sign midfielder Toumani Diagouraga on loan from Leeds United and that former Newcastle United defender Steven Taylor will start a trial on Monday.

Ipswich Town’s week to forget concluded with a 2-0 defeat at Huddersfield Town.

Ipswich Town are reportedly close to sign Leeds United midfielder Toumani Diagouraga on loan from fellow Championship club Leeds United.

Ipswich Town end a difficult week with a tricky game at Championship high-fliers Huddersfield Town this afternoon.

Ipswich Town will hope to put the horror of two poor games against Lincoln City in the FA Cup third round with a victory when they return to league duty this weekend.

Ipswich Town have signed free agent right-back Jordan Spence until the end of the season. The former West Ham and MK Dons man, 26, spoke to the media ahead of tomorrow’s Championship game at Huddersfield.

There is surely only one way Ipswich Town can go now after the embarrassment of a third round replay defeat to Lincoln City in the FA Cup on Tuesday – up.
