"We need to be more clinical and execute better to get a second goal"

Kieran McKenna was left frustrated by 'a similar story' as Town were held to a 1-1 draw at Crewe.

Conor Chaplin opened the scoring with his 11th goal of the season before Tom Lowery's impressive 86th minute strike saw the game level.

Only AFC Wimbledon have drawn more games than the Blues in League One this season, with Kieran telling iFollow Ipswich: "We should’ve won the game. We gave ourselves a good chance by taking the lead just before half-time, however, unfortunately, it’s a similar story.

"It’s frustrating for us and frustrating for the supporters. I thought it wasn’t a great game, to be honest. The conditions were tough with the pitch and the wind.

"One goal isn’t enough in this league; we need to kill it off and get a second goal, and we had opportunities to do that. We need to be more clinical and execute better to get a second goal but unfortunately it’s similar to Tuesday night [a 2-2 draw against Wigan].

"There were some good things about the performance, but overall it's frustration and disappointment for the away fans that we weren’t able to get the victory. That was the big message before the game. They’ve been fantastic and we wanted to send them home with a victory to go away with. Unfortunately, we didn’t do that.

"I’m looking forward to getting home now to Portman Road on Saturday. Hopefully, we go out with a win."
