"Today just showed how expensive a missed penalty can be. I enjoyed the game but any less than a win is always a disappointment. It is getting worrying as the nearer we get to the finish the more people are resigning themselves to relegation. But I will always be behind them and it is still possible they may miss going down.
"My father Ray Ellis was an Ipswich Town player many years ago and I will never let them down and stop supporting them," he said.
There have been moments of great excitement this season like the thrills of Moscow and Helsingborgs but in these darker days Burley and the boys need their fans behind them.
