Paul rues missed chances again and waits on video evidence after Jackson red

Paul Lambert rued Town’s failure again to put the ball in the net as Blues went down at home to Oxford.

Town dominated the first half but failed to make it pay and Matty Taylor’s goal just before the break proved decisive for the visitors.

“It was the same story as before. We dominated the game and had four or five chances in the first-half but didn’t take them,” the Town boss told iFollow Ipswich.

“They didn’t really threaten, then scored and that gave them something to hang on to in the second-half.

“We had good positions in the second-half but Oxford defended well and it just shows that you have to take your chances when you are dominating the game. If we’d done that in the first-half, it would have been a different game.

“Our home form has to turn as well. We have to start putting together a run of results here. I don’t care how we do it, if we have to grind it out and win ugly, so be it but we have to win games.”

Kayden Jackson was sent off in added on time for an alleged stamp on Rob Dickie that will leave him suspended for three games.

“I will have to look at it on video before deciding on whether to appeal or not because I didn’t really see it,” explained the boss.
