MURPH: FEELS LIKE A LOSS

5 October 2014

Striker disappointed Town couldn't hold on for all three points but still delighted at the direction Blues are heading

Daryl Murphy admitted the draw against Nottingham Forest felt more like a defeat, after seeing Town concede an injury time leveller to the Reds.

The Republic of Ireland striker twice put Blues ahead with classy finishes, but Michail Antonio struck in the 94th minute to rescue a point for Stuart Pearce’s men.

“It’s devastating to concede like we have done in injury time, it makes the result feel more like a loss,” Daryl told the Club website.

“That’s disappointing as we were so close to recording an excellent victory, against one of the strongest sides in the League.

“It would have been a great victory and we would have gone joint top of the League, but it shows how far we are progressing that we are disappointed to only come away with a point.

“The main thing is we performed well and it extends the unbeaten run. We are still in a Play-Off place going into the international break and the lads will be raring to go again, after a little rest.

“On a personal level I was delighted to get two goals today. The first one I actually thought the ‘keeper could have saved it, but it was great to see the ball nestle in the corner.

“As for the second, it was fantastic to score in front of the Ipswich fans who came in their numbers today, it’s just a shame we couldn’t quite give them the win this afternoon.”
