Caretaker boss unhappy at the timings of Wednesday strikes as Town suffer home defeat to the Owls

Chris Hutchings felt ‘anxiousness’ played a major part as Town went down 3-0 to Sheffield Wednesday at Portman Road.

Blues’ caretaker manager was left disappointed at the timing of the Owls’ goals, including a Ross Barkley strike after just 45 seconds of the game kicking off.

“I’m very disappointed at the result, of course and I felt there was a lot of anxiousness out there today,” Chris told Ipswich Player.

“Obviously that is expected when you’re bottom of the league and we got off to the worst possible start, which made life more difficult for us than it should have been.

“Goals dictate games and unfortunately we conceded at the worst possible times. Going behind in the first minute isn’t ideal and then I actually thought the second goal was a little against the run of play, but that was the crucial goal.

“We’re a little bit low on confidence as you can imagine but one or two of the boys haven’t performed to the best of their ability today, which is disappointing.

“We emphasised about keeping our concentration from the first whistle and making a bright start, but we haven’t done that today and because we conceded so early we’re suddenly up against it.

“It’s now up to me and the coaching staff to pick the boys and get them prepared for Birmingham on Saturday.”
