"On another day, we’d be in the third round of the Cup but we’ve got accept where we are"
Paul Cook bemoaned Town's inconsistency once again after a goalless draw against Barrow in the second round of the FA Cup.
As was the case in the first round against Oldham, the Blues will require a replay to book their place in the third round.
After a disappointing first half, both Joe Pigott and Cameron Humphreys were denied by the woodwork in the second period, but Barrow held on to take the tie back to Cumbria.
Reflecting on the 0-0 draw, Paul told iFollow Ipswich: "It was the same as Oldham. We were very slow again. We were back to the Rotherham game where we were passing backwards and sidewards.
"In the second half, I thought we were a lot more effective. We tried to change it and forced the game as well as we could. On another day, we’d be in the third round of the Cup but we’ve got to accept where we are.
"Our fans are desperate to get behind us, they’re desperate to support us. We’ve got to turn that little bit of trepidation into positivity.
"At the minute, we’re not consistent and it’s something we’ve got to eradicate."
