“I feel gutted for them but really proud of them as well”
Paul Lambert said he couldn’t have asked for anymore from his team after watching them lose out to a Matt Godden goal in the first-half.
Coventry’s win stretched their unbeaten run to 14 league games as Blues slipped seven points adrift of the Play-Off places but Town matched the league leaders all the way.
“I feel gutted for them but really proud of them as well,” the Town boss told iFollow Ipswich.
“The commitment, effort, taking the ball, as a manager I couldn’t ask for anymore. That is one of the most satisfactory things in the game of football, when your players are giving everything for you.
“Coventry have a lot of confidence about them but we matched them, especially with everything against us with three strikers out, one of the best players in the division missing in Flynn Downes.
“We had Teddy Bishop and Freddie Sears playing who have been out for a long time but we had to start with them and they did great. They were running on empty and we had kids on the bench to bring on. That’s the way it is at the moment.
“As I said though, I couldn’t have asked for more and I think you saw that in the reaction of the supporters. I know the frustration of the supporters, we are all frustrated but they could see the players gave everything. We were just missing that finishing touch.”
