Keeper on clean sheet and that Poland call-up
Bartosz Bialkowski said Town will ‘take the point’ after making it three games unbeaten with a 0-0 draw at home to Sheffield United.
The stalemate means Blues have now conceded just three goals in seven games, and the ‘keeper believes it was vital Town kept a clean sheet at Portman Road.
“Sheffield United are a good side so we’ll take the point and move on,” the Blues shot-stopper told iFollow Ipswich.
“It was important to keep a clean sheet. If you can’t win the game you need to at least keep a clean sheet to earn a point and we did that.
“We’re in good form at the moment and we’ve been very solid defensively. Now we have two big games against Hull and Bristol City so the focus is on trying to get six points.”
The 30-year-old also spoke of his delight having received the first international call-up of his career for Poland yesterday.
“I’ve always dreamt about playing for my country and I’ve worked hard for it so I’m very pleased I got the call,” he added.
“We have some great ‘keepers in Poland so it means a lot that I have been recognised.
“Now I’d love to get some time on the pitch. Four ‘keepers have been called up so I don’t know who will play but it would be great to get out there.”
Poland take on Nigeria in Wroclaw on Friday, March 23 before travelling to Chorzow to face South Korea the following Tuesday.
