'What it showed to me is the players that can do it and those that can’t' says Paul after cup exit

Paul Lambert said Town’s performance wasn’t good enough after watching his side go out of the FA Cup at Accrington.

Billy Kee’s second-half goal inflicted a ninth successive defeat at the third round stage for Blues.

“We didn’t deserve anything and that performance wasn’t good enough,” the Town boss told iFollow Ipswich.

“We had two or three chances at the end but not enough for us to get something from the game.

“There wasn’t too much in it but they showed a greater desire. It was a poor goal to concede as well. We have to stop giving silly free-kicks away. We are not the biggest team but we have to defend better from set-pieces.

“We were better in the second-half but what it showed to me is the players that can do it and those that can’t.

“I can understand the frustrations of the fans. No win since 2010 in the cup. That’s a ridiculous record. We deserve criticism today but we have to stay together.

“The Club should never be in this position but it is. I’m hoping we can get one or two more players in next week to help us and we’ve got one or two coming back from injury.”
