Paul to speak to owner as Town go down to Hull at the KC Stadium

Paul Jewell conceded Town didn’t deserve to take anything from the game at the KC Stadium, after Blues threw away a lead again.

Town have dropped 12 points from winning positions this term, with Jay Emmanuel-Thomas’ first-half goal cancelled out by two from Nick Proschwitz, the winner coming on 90 minutes.

“Losing late goals has been a problem for us but I can’t argue with the result, Hull deserved to win,” said the Town boss.

“We were disappointing in the first-half, a bit better in the second and we had chances to make it two when we were a goal up.

“But once they scored, the momentum was with them. We took a backward step. It comes down  to confidence but when it gets nitty, gritty, we do not have enough players who want to stand up and fight for the cause.  That’s why we are losing games.

“Our ‘keeper did well and made two or three good saves but we weren’t good enough overall and I’ve been told that’s 12 points we have dropped from winning positions this season.”

Paul admitted that he has some serious thinking to do before Blues’ next game, against Derby on Tuesday night.

“That’s 11 games gone and seven points. That’s relegation form. There’s no hiding from that,” he added. “I will speak to the owner and the people closest to me over the weekend but I have to do what I think is right for Ipswich Town. I don’t want to quit but I have to think about the Club. We will see.”
