IPSWICH Town defender Liam Rosenior today revealed that he feels sorry for manager Roy Keane.

The Blues failed to beat Championship basement club Peterborough at Portman Road last night to remain in the bottom three.

This is despite conceding just two goals in their last six games, and going nine matches unbeaten.

Frustration crept in after the second 0-0 draw in three days with Rosenior saying: “We were kept in the changing room for a long while by the manager after the game. And there was not harmony.

“The manager is a winner, and I feel sorry for him.

“He must have gone home thinking what more can he do.

“There are a lot of winners in our dressing room, and the day I accept a 0-0 home league draw is the day I need to hang up my boots.”

Rosenior says that the players are working hard together with the manager. “I'm sure we'll get it right,” he added.

“We were better than Peterborough in every department. Form is temporary but class is permanent and like at Bristol City on Saturday we should have scored four or five goals.”

Rosenior can't understand why a first-half header by Stern John was ruled out for a foul.

“Stern just rose above his marker, a small guy. The referee was the only person in the stadium who thought it was a foul.

“And shortly afterwards their player lifts his arm and the ball strikes him in the penalty area. I could hear the smack against his arm. It was a clear handball.”
