Ryan believes Town can be a top six team but must first eradicate the mistakes that are costing goals- and points- as the Blues are held at home by Bristol City

Ryan Fraser believes Town need to stop conceding so many silly goals if they’re to propel themselves up the Championship table.

The winger scored the equaliser, his third league goal of the season, in the 2-2 draw with Bristol City at Portman Road on Saturday and believes that despite the goals conceded, the game showed the strength of character within the dressing-room to rally back and gain a point.

“I thought we started brightly in the second-half and when we got the goal I thought ‘this is it’ and we would score more,” he told Ipswich player HD

“Then they scored twice in quick succession but to be fair to the lads, a lot of teams would have crumbled under the pressure but we stuck together as a team, the fans were behind us and we got the second.

“They sat behind the ball and made it hard for us to break them down so maybe we should have passed it a little bit more.

“We had to do something about their formation about ten minutes in and maybe had to go a little bit more attacking but it was disappointing to lose two goals.

“We’ve scored two goals in most games this season and you can’t always do that to get you out of trouble.

“The gaffer said the difference between a top-six side and a bottom-six side is the goals you concede. If you’re grafting out 1-0’s, 2-0’s and 2-1’s then that’s alright but if you’re conceding two goals every game it’s not great.

“We’ve played Tuesday – Saturday – Wednesday – Saturday and it’s been all hands on deck so it will be nice to get a bit of a rest this week and go to Blackburn at the weekend focussed and prepared to go again.”
