IPSWICH Town technical skills coach Steve Foley today called for more consistency from the club's players.

After a run of three defeats that included two worrying home losses inside four days, Foley said: “We have not been able to field a settled side because players have been inconsistent.

“They have done well for one or two games and then fell away.

“We will be working hard on the training ground to find the consistency we need from players to enable us to keep the team as settled as possible.

“It does not help when you are chopping and changing the team around every week.

“We gave away three poor goals in the 3-2 home defeat by Preston on Tuesday. And this was after conceding five against West Brom.

“Once the first goal went in on Tuesday you could see everybody getting edgy, and it changed the match after we had controlled the first half.”

Foley, who played, coached and briefly managed Colchester before coaching with a great deal of success at Norwich City, joined Ipswich in the summer after leaving the Canaries at the end of last season.

He comes up against another East Anglian club on Saturday when Ipswich face a tough test with a trip to newly promoted Southend.
