Skipper gutted to be out of the Play-Off race but wants to use Clarets' promotion as a springboard for success with Town

Luke Chambers is hoping to use the disappointment of missing out on a Play-Off place as a springboard for success with Ipswich Town.

The skipper spoke to the press after the defeat to promoted Burnley at Turf Moor, following Michael Kightly’s second-half winner for the Clarets, and wants to replicate the celebrations of Sean Dyche’s side at Portman Road next term.

“I’m gutted right now but we can all look at Burnley and use that as a platform for next season,” Chambo told the Club website.

“They’ve stuck together and won promotion and when you see scenes like we have done today, with them celebrating on the pitch, it makes you want to have a taste of it.

“I’ve been fortunate to win two promotions in my career but one that’s missing is going up to the Premier League. I’d love to do it with Ipswich Town.  

“We can look back at the season as one of progression, but right now I’m just terribly disappointed to be out of the promotion race.

“I’m disappointed for myself, all of the boys, the gaffer, the management staff, the supporters and everyone connected to the Club really.

“We were a bit lacking today but full credit to Burnley, they showed why they’ve won promotion and I wish them all the best. I’ve played with Sean Dyche before and I’m absolutely delighted for him.”
