Piotr delighted to make his Town debut but left frustrated at the result as the Blues are defeated at Portman Road
- Mixed emotions for Pole
- Happy to be at Town
- Pleased to have Bartosz alongside him
Piotr Malarczyk has admitted he was delighted to make his Town debut, but was left frustrated with the result.
The Polish defender made his bow as a half-time substitute but couldn’t help Town to victory, as Brighton left Portman Road with all three points in a 3-2 victory.
The Seagulls led 2-0 at half-time thanks to goals from Kazenga LuaLua and Dale Stephens, before strikes from Freddie Sears and a penalty from David McGoldrick levelled the scores.
However a goal from striker Tomer Hemed earned Brighton the win and saw Town defeated for the first time this season.
“I am very happy to sign for Ipswich Town and I’m excited to be here,” Piotr told the official Club website.
“It was good to get some time on the pitch today, although it wasn’t the result we wanted.
“Credit to Brighton, they are a very good side and they played with a lot of pace. But we can still hold our heads up high.
“I really enjoyed the atmosphere and the fans are very lively. I have always wanted to play in England and I’m happy to be here now.
“My English isn’t the best but it helps having Bartosz [Bialkowski] with me and he’s helping me settle in. All of the players have been very welcoming.
“I just want to work hard every day and show people what I can do.”
