Reaction: Lambert, Jackson and Warne react to Rotherham’s win against below par Town
We get all the reaction after Town suffered a 1-0 at the hands of Rotherham on Tuesday evening.
Lambert: We didn’t do enough
Paul Lambert had no arguments with the result at Rotherham and conceded Town didn’t do enough to get anything from the game.
“We knew it was going to be a physical game. They threw everything at it but I thought we defended well from corners and set-plays,” Lambert told iFollow Ipswich.
“You have to defend well because they put a lot of balls into the box and they are good at what they do.
“We stayed in the game and in the last 15 minutes had a real go and Norwood was unlucky at the end when he hit the post and Luke Garbutt had a free-kick go close as well.
“We rode our luck at times, they hit the post twice but overall we didn’t do enough over the 90 minutes to get anything out of the game.
“It will be a different match Saturday though against Peterborough and we will pick ourselves up and go again.”
Jackson: Weren’t at the races
Town striker Kayden Jackson felt Town never really got going against Rotherham on Tuesday night.
“It was disappointing,” Jackson told iFollow Ipswich. “For whatever reason we weren’t at the races and we never played football. We’ve been doing well recently, we came into this off the back of a good run, got ourselves back to the top of the league and wanted to capitalise.
“It was always going to be a tough game but we just weren’t at it and we need to put it right on Saturday now.”
Warne: Fully deserved win
Millers boss Paul Warne was understandably delighted to see his team pick up the three points and return to the top of the league.
It was a good night for us,” said Warne. “Tuesday night under the lights in a top-of-the-table clash.
“I thought we were really dominant. I don’t normally come out here and go really crazy about my team but I thought we did well tonight, created loads of chances and thoroughly deserved the win.
“We worked hard for each other out of possession tonight. There was one point at the end with Freddie at right-back and Smithy in centre-mid, so we were working hard for a result against a really good side.
“Our overall play tonight deserved more than a set-piece goal. As well as hitting the bar twice, we could have scored a second right at the end had Chieo slipped Freddie in. I’m not complaining. A clean-sheet and win against the best team in the league makes me really happy.”
