Bartosz Bialkowski can't hide his disappointment after a stoppage time penalty denies Town a point

Town stopper, Bartosz Bialkowski has described the last minute defeat at Reading as ‘painful’ with Danny Williams netting a spot-kick in the 94th minute to hand the hosts all three points.

The Blues had gone behind, and then levelled, with penalties from Garath McCleary and Brett Pitman respectively, but the third, and ultimately decisive, strike left a bad taste in the mouth of the Polish ‘keeper.

“I thought we were decent, especially in the second-half,” he told Ipswich Player HD.

“We played our football and stuck to our plan so I thought we deserved so much better from the game and to concede two soft penalties is so painful.

“For me, they’re not penalties, all three of them. The first one, Grant Ward has his hands in a natural position and it was so close as well. The second one, for us, could have gone either way and with the last one you could see it coming, especially after the warnings, you just knew the referee was going to give it.

“To lose the game in the last minute is so painful but there are still loads of games left and there were positives to take from the game.

“It’s another lesson for us, so we’ll go to Derby on Tuesday now and try to win the game.”
