Boss sees plenty of positives as Blues show their character

Paul Hurst praised the character of his side after watching Town come from behind to earn a point against an impressive Brentford side.

Kayden Jackson’s first Championship goal gave Blues a 1-1 draw after Neal Maupay had put the Bees in front in the first-half.

“We have come up against a very good team playing at the top of their game,” the Town boss told iFollow Ipswich.

“They had lots of confidence flowing through their team and we had to hang on in there.

“That was the chat at half-time. We tried something different first-half, was it brave or stupid - I’ll let others decide but it didn’t work.

“In the end we gave it a real go and it was a great header from Kayden and just reward for his performance.

“It could have gone either way after that but massive credit to the players. It was our most disappointing performance of the season at the weekend and then to go a goal down against a very good side, we could quite easily have gone under. I’ve seen it happen but the players showed great character.

“For that alone, it was a big performance. I know it wasn’t the victory we all wanted but I'll take a lot of positives from it.”
