IPSWICH Town's outstanding midfield player Darren Currie said today how cruel football could be.

“We really were outstanding at times at Wolverhampton on Saturday and had so much of the play,” said the 31-year-old.

“But we lost 1-0 to show how cruel football can be.”

Currie preferred to look at the positives rather than mope on this defeat.

He added: “If we play like this we can still make the play-offs. We will have a decent chance.

“We picked up no points, but there were plenty of good things about our performance.

“It was disappointing to concede a penalty and there is no doubt that their player was looking for a spot kick.

“I am not blaming him as I would expect our players to do the same.

“Sito (Castro) went for the ball and on another day he would have got to it first.”

Adam Proudlock faces a critical few weeks in his attempt to resurrect his career after being dumped by Sheffield Wednesday.

Town manager Joe Royle gave him a second chance and the 24-year-old showed up well, coming on after the interval.

If Ricardo Fuller's signing does not come off, then Proudlock could be up front for injury-hit Town for the next few matches.

He was told at 6.45pm on Friday to report to the team hotel in the midlands, and he travelled up by taxi that night.

The former Wolves player said: “To be at the ground was great and to get nearly a half on the pitch was a bonus.

“I nearly scored and it was a good day for me.

“From a team point of view it was disappointing as we played unbelievably well at times and deserved at least a point.”
