Defender disappointed to suffer derby day defeat and left frustrated in the manner that Blues conceded against the Canaries

Luke Chambers was disappointed to suffer defeat in his first East Anglian derby and has called on Town to come back stronger from this loss.

Blues conceded a soft goal in the first-half, as Lewis Grabban nodded home the winner from close range after a mix-up in the Town box, which saw the Canaries run out winners at Portman Road.

Chambo felt Town did match the visitors for large periods of the game but ultimately was left frustrated with the manner of the goal Blues let in.

“I don’t think there was too much between the teams, it was a pretty even game,” the Town skipper told Ipswich Player.  

“Both sides had chances and I’d argue that we’ve probably had the best chance of the game through [Daryl] Murphy’s header that he’s nodded wide.

“We’re obviously bitterly disappointed to have lost the game, especially for the fans who came out in their thousands today.

“Norwich are a good side and they’ve still got that Premiership quality about them, but I thought we matched them for large periods of the game.

“Unfortunately we’ve let ourselves down with the manner of the goal we’ve conceded, which has won them the game.

“They’ve come away with a 1-0 victory thanks to bad marking from us and it was a soft goal to give away, which isn’t like us.

“We have to learn from that and come back stronger.”
