We have to win both home games coming up says Paul as Town pay price for lack of ruthlessness at both ends against Blackpool

Paul Lambert said he would have been disappointed to leave Blackpool with a point let alone going down to a last minute Joe Nuttall goal.

A Freddie Sears goal early in the second-half cancelled out Kiernan Dewsbury-Hall’s opener and the Town striker was denied a second in the last minute by ‘keeper Chris Maxwell before Nuttall provided the sucker punch moments later.

“I’m getting bored of saying the same thing, the chances we had in that game,” the Town boss told iFollow Ipswich.

“We were in control of the game for long spells, were dominating and then we lose it right at the end. That’s the way it’s going for us at the minute.

“We should have had a penalty in the first-half. Freddie was in front of the man and he’s gone down. It was a stonewaller.

“Freddie did great. He got a really good goal and then he looked like he would win it for us at the end and then we concede a really bad goal.

“The first one was very disappointing as well and we end up losing a game we should never have lost. I would have been disappointed to draw.

“We have to start taking our chances though. I’m saying that every week. We have to start putting the ball in the net and we can’t afford to give the goals away we did today. It has to stop.

“We’ve got a massive week ahead now with two home games and we’ve got to win them. It’s no good playing well, we need to win games however we do it.”
