Skuse admits Town disappointed not to hold onto lead but insists it's a point gained rather than two dropped

Cole Skuse labelled Town’s 1-1 draw with Watford as a point gained rather than two dropped.

The midfielder played his part as Blues took the lead through a David McGoldrick penalty, before Troy Deeney pounced late on the ensure the Hornets claimed a share of the spoils.

“I think the overall feeling in the dressing-room afterwards is of mixed emotions,” Cole told Ipswich Player.

“Having worked hard to get ourselves into a winning position we should probably have held out but in the end we’ve had to settle for a point.

“It’s definitely a point gained and it was a tricky game as our preparations we’re thrown a little bit due to Watford getting a new manager but overall I thought we performed pretty well.

“We could have won it towards the end there with Luke’s header but it wasn’t to be.

“I felt a bit for Luke as the ‘keeper spread himself big, so he had to head it over him and unfortunately he needed just an extra couple of inches for it to go in rather than hit the bar.

“But it’s a good point overall and it keeps us on the tail of that pack chasing the top six and we now focus on trying to pick up points on the road against Doncaster and Bournemouth.”
