SKIPPER ON WIGAN DRAW

11 December 2021

"The lads are determined to keep this season alive"

Sam Morsy says that picking up a point at Wigan is a step in the right direction towards still achieving success this season.

James Norwood came off the bench to cancel out Callum Lang's first-half opener at DW Stadium.

The Blues could have taken more from the game through late chances for Kyle Edwards and Sone Aluko but the match ended in a 1-1 draw.

"It was a tough game," Town's captain told iFollow Ipswich. "I thought they were better in the first half and that we were better in the second half.

"Towards the end, there was only going to be one team who would nick it and that was us. It’s a step in the right direction.

"We know we have to be better and, as captain of the Club, I know the standard and I know what it takes. I’m going to give absolutely everything I can.

"In the second half, they’ve seen a team fighting for each other. That’s what we’ve got to do because the lads are determined to keep this season alive."

Just short of 1,100 fans made the long trip to the North-West following over 3,000 supporters packing out the away end at Charlton on Tuesday night.

Sam continued: "We accept that the other night at Charlton was unacceptable. We let our fans down.

"It was flat on Tuesday. I didn’t perform and as a team we didn’t perform - I can only apologise to the fans for that.

"You could see them clapping us today for getting a draw because the effort was there. We have to do better for them.

“We really appreciate the support. I would just like to say thank you for coming and continuing to support us."
