"Whatever the performance is, it's the result that matters at this stage of the season"

Kieran McKenna spoke to iFollow Ipswich following tonight's goalless draw with Cheltenham Town at Portman Road.

The Blues were made to pay for missed chances in the first half, with Wes Burns going closest as he fired over after Bersant Celina's cross had found him at the back post in the fifth minute.

Cheltenham offered very little goal threat but frustrated Town in the second half as Michael Duff's side held on for a point.

"It's a very disappointed dressing room," Kieran told iFollow Ipswich.

"We wanted three points, and needed three points, but didn't get them. Whatever the performance is, it's the result that matters at this stage of the season.

"In terms of the game, I thought the first half was the best we have played by a long way. We were aggressive and didn't give them a kick, but didn't take our chances.

"In the second half, the performance didn't meet those levels. Sometimes the fear creeps in that it might not be your night.

"The message at half-time was that it had been a really good performance in the first half, but we still had to find another gear. We weren't able to find our rhythm, though.

"We need to pick ourselves up quickly. It's two points dropped but we have two tough away games coming up."
