CHAMBO: WE GAVE THEM A HEAD START

22 February 2014

Skipper disappointed with the goals Town conceded as Mick McCarthy's side fall foul to the Foxes at the King Power

Luke Chambers was disappointed to give Leicester a ‘head start’, as Town fell to a 3-0 defeat to the league leaders at the King Power Stadium.

First-half strikes from Jamie Vardy and David Nugent fired the Foxes in front, before Chris Wood wrapped up the points for Nigel Pearson’s side late on.

“We’re disappointed as we thought we gave a good account of ourselves but ultimately we’ve given three goals away and you can’t give teams like Leicester a head start,” Chambo told Ipswich Player.

“They had the majority of the possession, but you’d expect that against the team top of the table.

“I think we’ve contributed to our own downfall as much as anything today though. We’ve given goals away that we haven’t done for a very long time.

“If you give chances away like we have done today and especially against a team like Leicester, then you are going to get beat.

“It’s disappointing but we have to move on now. The fans were brilliant and came in their numbers and we do appreciate their continued support.”

Full interview with the skipper will be available on Ipswich Player on Monday, along with post-match reaction from boss Mick McCarthy.
