Town defender happier with defensive showing following goalless draw at Molineux

Christophe Berra believes Town were more like themselves defensively as a solid display at the back helped come out of Molineux with a point.

It was the Blues’ first clean sheet of the season having conceded four times in the opening two league match, but had to rely on the goalkeeping of Bartosz Bialkowski to keep the hosts out with an excellent penalty save in the first half.

“We got a clean sheet, but that starts at the front with Murph and Searsy,” he told Ipswich Player HD.

“Then you have the midfielders of Dougie and Skusey working hard and stopping the service which gives us a chance to go tight to the strikers.

“We managed to do that, and we defended our set-pieces well which recently we’ve been disappointed with. We stuck with our men and Bart pulled off a good penalty save which is credit to him.

“We get clips of strikers, but the ‘keepers always look at set-pieces. I asked him if he’d looked at anything and he’d only seen one penalty Bodvarsson had taken before so that’s all credit to Will [Stephenson, analyst] and Malcolm Webster the goalkeeping coach.”
