Blues skipper, Chambers reflects on Town's victory over Burton Albion

Luke Chambers has praised a thoroughly professional job, as Town defeated Burton 2-1, but concedes the players have to take responsibility for the results this season.

The skipper was also pleased with the backing from the stands at the Pirelli Stadium and believes they gave the supporters something to shout about.

"We haven't been good enough this season, but tonight we were the better team and that showed in the support we received," he told Ipswich Player HD.

"From minute one they were right behind us because we competed with the opposition which is something we haven't done as well as we have in previous seasons. We won't just turn up and pass teams off the pitch because the league is so competitive but we have to work harder than everyone else.

"When you read the programme notes before the game they always say 'you know what you're going to get with Ipswich, they'll work hard and be organised' but for me that's a given; we want and need to be better than that.

"We have to take responsibility for this season, but I think the 11 players, and the ones that came on, gave a good performance tonight.

"It's never easy when it comes to us and we've tried to give the game away at the end but it showed that we were dedicated tonight and handled that pressure, so we're all smiles in the dressing room.

"I've been pulling my hair out in the last couple of months because it's very difficult as an individual to get everyone on the same page, but I think the lads were tonight.

"They realised the importance of the game, especially having played after everyone, because we could have left here in a much worse position than we came in.

"It does seem whenever we need a result we come up with one, but that's been few and far between this season so hopefully in the last couple of games we can give the fans something to shout about."
