No excuses for midfielder as Town fall to defeat in Wales

Cole Skuse insists that having two long away trips in a week had no bearing on Town failing to gain anything from fellow Play-Off chasers Cardiff City.

The midfielder played his first game for over a month as Bruno Manga’s first-half header gave the Welsh side all three points on the Bluebirds’ home patch.

“I wouldn’t say so,” Skuse told Ipswich Player HD on whether the distance had affected the Blues performance.

“The staff and the physio department do everything they can to prepare us properly for the next game and I wouldn’t use that as an excuse.

“It was two teams chasing the Play-Offs and it was one of those games that neither side wanted to lose which you could probably sense from the way the game went.

“It was brilliant for me to get out there as it’s seemed like an eternity. It’s been four or five weeks, I’m back ahead of schedule, and I thought I did a job today to a degree by putting in a reasonable performance.

“We’ve got two tough home games next against teams who are no mugs in this division, but it will be nice to be back on our own patch and hopefully we can put on a display for the home fans.”
