GOAL hero Tommy Miller admitted that Ipswich Town players are concerned at their lowly league position and know its time to start to taking all three points instead of keeping dropping two.

The Blues are still in 18th place in the league, but with a quarter of the season gone, Miller accepts it is time they made their move upwards.

He said: “I would be lying if I said it didn't bother us. We all look at the league tables and see where we are.

“We don't want to be playing catch up. We wanted to be up there from the start.

“It has not happened yet, but I'm sure we will get there.”

Miller felt Town played with more cohesion and used the lesson learned on Saturday to help them.

He said: “Saturday was disappointing against Swansea and they passed us off the park a little and we have done to Forest what Swansea did to us.”

Although clear cut chances were few and far between, and it took a penalty to beat the bottom club who had two goals disallowed, Town did a decent job.

He said: “We didn't create many chances but we kept the ball a lot and passed it around very well.

“Their goal came out of the blue really. Jon Walters had hit the bar on another day that might have gone in.

“They scored from a corner that was not cleared probably and it took a slight deflection on the way in.

“We got the goal back and pressed but it wasn't to be.”

Miller maintained his 100 per cent record of putting away more than 20 senior penalties, even though Nottingham goalkeeper Lee Camp went the right way.

Miller said: “I was confident I would put it away. Camp told me he knew where I was going, but I hit it well.

“I know the referee from the north-east, but it was definite penalty. None of their lads appealed.”
