Paul rues errors and concedes Town beaten by better team on the day
Paul Hurst had no arguments with the result and says Town are giving themselves a mountain to climb with the goals being given away.
Rangers won the game with two first-half strikes through a Dean Gerken own goal and a Tomer Hemed penalty.
“The better team won,” the Town boss told iFollow Ipswich.
“We didn’t start the game well enough and gave away a bad goal. There was still a long time left after it but we didn’t have a good enough reaction.
“The penalty right on half-time changes it even more. It looked a penalty. They took a long time to make a decision but it was the right decision.
“The second-half, we have one or two little chances but we remained vulnerable on the break.
“It was another bad goal to give away and that is costing us at the moment. We are giving ourselves mountains to climb. That said, we had time to get back in the game but didn’t do enough today to do that.
“I know the first goal hurts Gerks but he showed a lot of character after that.
“I think in general the fans are behind him but I heard one or two things which were disappointing.
“He’s a pro who has served the Club well. He can’t change that moment for the goal but he reacted well. He came for balls into the box, didn’t shy away from that and made some big saves for us.”
