Defender delighted to make Town debut but disappointed that dogged display wasn't rewarded with a share of the spoils

Reece Brown admits he was delighted to make his Town debut but circumstances dictated that he couldn’t enjoy it the way he would have wanted.

The right-back, who is on loan at Portman Road from Manchester United, came on as a second-half substitute during the defeat to Nottingham Forest, in a game which saw Blues finish with nine men after Lee Martin and Richard Stearman were both sent off at the City Ground.

“I thought we played well, even when we went down to nine men, as we were still defending superbly and I don’t think we deserved to lose,” Reece told the Club website.

“We’ve lost to a deflected goal at the end there but that’s football for you. It’s one of those things and it’s important that we don’t let it affect us too much, as our performance deserved more.

“On a personal level it was great to make my first appearance for Ipswich and hopefully I can get a few more appearances under my belt soon.

“Obviously it’s not the result I would have wanted for my debut and all the boys are gutted in the dressing-room, as we feel the defensive display we showed tonight deserved a point.

“We’ve got another big game on Saturday against Peterborough though so hopefully we can get back to winning ways there.”
