SYLVAIN Legwinski reflected on yet another frustrating night for Ipswich Town and said: “We were without doubt the better team against Preston.
“However, we need to be more adventurous going forward and more of a threat in front of goal.
“For the first time for a long while we passed the ball around and kept possession in similar fashion to what we were doing in the autumn.
“We enjoyed two good wins when Francis Jeffers was with us and we need to go on and build up a series of positive results.
“Our front two last night played well and I am not criticising them at all. If we carry on playing like this the goals will come and we will win more games than we lose.”

Skipper Jason De Vos agreed, saying: “We played our best football for a long while, but it proved an awfully long way home because of another frustrating defeat.
“We were caught out by a sucker punch when Preston drove a good ball into the middle and Michael Ricketts pulled into space between Alex Bruce and myself.
“Lewis Price hardly had a save to make and we caused Preston all sorts of problems.”
Preston, who have not lost a game all season in which they have taken the lead, were indebted to goalkeeper Andrew Lonergan for two good early saves, but the keeper admitted he was lucky in the second minute.
“Ipswich played very well and when the corner came over Callum Davidson laid on the ball on the goal line. If the Ipswich player had got a decent touch it had to be a goal.
“It would have been a very different game then. As it was, Ipswich restricted the way we could play. We may have been fortunate, but the win was the only important thing to us.”
Ex-Colchester defender Liam Chilvers said: “I can see brighter times for Ipswich.
“In Sylvain Legwinski they have an exceptional player and youngsters like Billy Clarke will soon blossom.
“Their two players up front both did an awful lot of running and caused us problems, but overall we just about deserved to win.”
Matt Richards said: “I suffered an ankle injury in pre-season and took a knock on it. Then I went over on the same ankle.
“I will see how it is after treatment. We were the better team and passed the ball much better.”
