Christophe Berra tries to get to grips with Hull's Chuba Akpom

Christophe Berra admitted Ipswich Town paid the price for switching off as the Blues went down 3-0 at Hull last night.

After matching their hosts for the opening half an hour, the Ipswich resistance was broken after 35 minutes as old boy Alex Bruce looped a header into the back of the net before Chuba Akpom doubled the Hull lead before the break.

From there the Blues never looked like battling back into the contest, which was beyond them after David Meyler scored Hull’s third in the second half, with Berra admitting the two goals before the break made it incredibly difficult.

He said: “We were well in the game, it was a corner quick which got cleared and they got it back, we switched off and they got in behind us to the back post and it’s a good header from the boy (Bruce).

“Those are things the gaffer expects us to defend better and stop the cross, but the killer goal was probably the one before half-time because we were well in the game.

“The better teams you play in this league, the more clinical they are, we switched off, lost the ball and the ball down the side brought a good cross and then the finish was good.”
