HYAM: WE BLINKED FIRST

18 March 2014

Midfielder felt Town created their own problems against the Latics but still harbours Play-Off aspirations

Luke Hyam felt Town ‘blinked first’ as Wigan came from behind to beat the Blues 3-1 at Portman Road.

Tommy Smith fired Mick McCarthy’s side in front, before the Latics hit back through a James McClean double either side of an Emmerson Boyce strike.

The midfielder felt Town created their own problems by giving away three soft goals but admits the lads certainly haven’t given up hopes of creeping into the top six.

“It’s disappointing to have lost today as it was such a big game for both teams,” the Ipswich-born man told the Club website.  

“We were all kicking ourselves in the dressing-room afterwards because we got into a great position by going in front but unfortunately we’ve ‘blinked first’ if you like and been punished.   

“Wigan took their chances but we really gave them three goals, which wasn’t good on our part. The game’s gone now though and we have to look ahead to Saturday’s game.

“We’re still on the fringes of the Play-Offs though and we’ve not given up hope of breaking into the top six. We’ve got Brighton, Derby and Forest as our next three games so it’s a sort of ‘make or break’ period for us now.

“We’ll rest up tomorrow and be back in on Monday to focus on another big game for us and hopefully we can get back to winning ways.”
