Daryl Murphy believes that a draw was probably the right outcome as Town finished level with Preston, but his team-mates believe a penalty should have been awarded

Daryl Murphy believes that a draw was probably the right result as Town were held at home by Preston North End.

The Irishman scored the equaliser as the first-half drew to a close after Daniel Johnson had opened the scoring for the visitors with just seven minutes on the clock.

“It wasn’t the best of games. The pitch wasn’t great so we couldn’t pass the ball around as much as we wanted but overall, I’m a bit disappointed we didn’t win,” he told Ipswich Player HD.

“I think it was probably a fair result. I didn’t see the last decision there, but the lads are convinced it’s a stonewall penalty and that the Preston player literally had his hand on the ball on the ground for a few seconds, but you get those sometimes and sometimes you don’t.

“It was a good finish [for his goal]. I had a few chances and the keeper saved one of them, but I was delighted to get on the scoresheet. They gave me a lot of space to line it up so there was only one thing in my mind when I turned and that was to shoot.

“The gaffer said after the game that sometimes you have to see it out and the main thing was that we didn’t lose, so onto the next one.”
