Blues made to rue missed chances says debutant goalkeeper

David Cornell says that there were encouraging signs from Town's performance despite falling to a 2-1 home reverse at the hands of Arsenal U21 in the EFL Trophy.

Having led through a Jon Nolan volley, the Gunners turned the game on it's head with goals either side of half-time.

Blues hit the woodwork twice and James Norwood had one cleared off the line while numerous Town players were frustrated by an impressive performance from Arsenal goalkeeper Tom Smith.

David, who was making his debut for the Club against the Gunners, told iFollow Ipswich: "On another day, we could've scored a few more and won the game quite comfortably."

"There was a couple of goalmouth scrambles in there and their lad [Arsenal goalkeeper Smith] made some good saves.

"We played some good stuff at times. Obviously, we’re still learning a new style of play. We want to keep improving and getting better.

"It was nice to play here and make my debut. I’m obviously disappointed to lose the game but there were some encouraging signs ahead of Sunday."
