PLAYER REACTION: We should have got something out of Leeds defeat – Andy Drury

18:00 15 December 2012

Leeds United v Ipswich: Andy Drury believes a 2-0 win flattered Leeds United this afternoon.

The Blues left Elland Road empty-handed after goals from Jerome Thomas and Paul Green gave Leeds all three points.

Ipswich bossed possession at times and spurned some good chances – although the same was true of the home side with top scorer Luciano Becchio particularly wasteful.

Yet Drury felt Town should have returned to Suffolk with at least a point after losing their first match in five.

The midfielder said: “I definitely thought we deserved something – it was pretty even.

“Both teams had spells where they were on top, but I thought we had enough chances to get something out the game, if not win it.

“We were just talking in the dressing room about a lack of quality – the finishing, I think.

“If we could have taken one of our chances and got it back to 1-1, we would have been able to take the game forward to them. So we are disappointed.”

  • Perhaps just perhaps someone should tell towns players that the idea of playing football is to score goals and not keep whinging on about what should have been. Drury how many goals did town score....oh yes a big zero!!!

  • Ged - I note with interest that you made no comment on Town's goal scoring when we put 3 past Forest and Millwall.

  • Hooray, Ged Scott is back, we have missed you and your useless comments. Poor old Steroo has been trying to hold his end up on his own, and failed dismally, as usual. Get behind the Town or get off this site please.

Ipswich Town lost 2-0 at Bristol City for the second season in succession courtesy of a controversial first half penalty and a second half screamer.

It was the Blue’s biggest win of the season – but after defeating QPR Mick McCarthy’s men now have to show they can start putting together back-to-back wins in order to climb up the table.

Ipswich Town head to Ashton Gate this afternoon, aiming to record back-to-back wins in the Championship for the first time this season.

Cole Skuse returns to Ashton Gate for the first time as an opposition player today, when his Ipswich Town side travel to Bristol City.

One goal either way could well prove decisive when Ipswich Town play at Ashton Gate, the home of Bristol City, tomorrow (3pm kick-off).

Mick McCarthy will stick with his winning formula at Bristol City tomorrow, even if his team selection remains unpopular amongst some supporters.

Blues midfielder Cole Skuse will celebrate with relish, should he get on the scoresheet at former club Bristol City tomorrow.

Ipswich Town manager Mick McCarthy said he had never encountered any stories of child abuse in football until this week, and says the number of alleged victims is “appalling”.

Ipswich Town manager Mick McCarthy has taken the unusual step of naming his side for Saturday’s trip to Bristol City - the Blues set to be unchanged for the Championship game at Ashton Gate.

Former Ipswich Town and Colchester United footballer David Wright has spoken of his shock at the historical child sex abuse which allegedly took place during his time in the Crewe Alexandra youth academy during the 1980s.
