Praise for Town's rearguard action and final flourish but Paul admits Millers deserved the win

Paul Lambert had no arguments with the result at Rotherham and conceded Town didn’t do enough to get anything from the game.

Richard Wood’s first-half goal gave the Millers the points and took them back to the top of the League One table at Blues’ expense.

James  Norwood was close to an equaliser for Town, hitting the post from an acute angle in added on time.

“We knew it was going to be a physical game. They threw everything at it but I thought we defended well from corners and set-plays,” Town boss Paul told iFollow Ipswich.

“You have to defend well because they put a lot of balls into the box and they are good at what they do.

“We stayed in the game and in the last 15 minutes had a real go and Norwood was unlucky at the end when he hit the post and Luke Garbutt had a free-kick go close as well.

“We rode our luck at times, they hit the post twice but overall we didn’t do enough over the 90 minutes to get anything out of the game.

“It will be a different match Saturday though against Peterborough and we will pick ourselves up and go again.”
