Hyam looks for Blues to finish with credit over final games of the season
Town midfielder Luke Hyam said the red card changed the game as Blues fell to a 4-0 defeat against Aston Villa at Portman Road.
Grant Ward was dismissed three minutes before half-time following a high challenge on Villa’s Neil Taylor.
“We started well but after the red card it was extremely hard to try and get back into it,” Luke told iFollow Ipswich.
“A sending off on a hot day like this made it very difficult for us but the main thing is that Taylor wasn’t injured.
“There was certainly no malice in the tackle from Wardy, though, he had his eyes on the ball and was looking to bring it down but obviously made contact and fortunately it didn’t result in a serious injury.
“I’d like to add how brilliant the fans were today. We’ll always be grateful for their support. We have two games left this season and we’ll be giving it our all to finish with a couple of good results.”
