Players gave all said boss but maybe the week caught up with players at the end

Bryan Klug said he couldn’t have asked for more from his players as Town went down to two late goals at the City Ground.

Grant Ward’s first-half goal looked enough to have won it for Blues but Ben Brereton levelled on 88 minutes from the penalty spot and Joe Lolley scored with virtually the last kick of the game.

“The players gave me and the Club everything,” Town’s caretaker manager told iFollow Ipswich.

“I couldn’t have asked for more at the end of what has been a traumatic week or so and maybe that took its toll at the end.

“I thought the game plan worked well and we had chances on the break in the second-half to have got a second goal.

“The penalty changed the game obviously and they got momentum from it but it was a real kick in the teeth to concede five seconds from the end.

“For 87 minutes, it was a performance Mick [McCarthy] would have been proud of in what was always going to be a difficult game for us, with only one training session with the players. It's important we all move on now though and we can look forward to a great game against Aston Villa next week.”
