Bartosz Bialkowski admitted the point gained in last night’s 0-0 draw with Chalrton simply wasn’t enough for Ipswich Town.

The Blues had chances against the relegation-threatened Addicks but couldn’t find a way through, as they drew a second-straight game 0-0 and failed to score for the fourth outing in five.

That leaves Ipswich seven points adrift of sixth-placed Derby with six games to go, as they bid to make the play-offs, with Bialkowski admitting more was required against the Addicks.

“It isn’t enough,” the goalkeeper admitted.

“When you can’t win the game you have to make sure you don’t lose it so we got a point, but it’s not enough. It’s a real shame.

“For keepers and defenders to keep a clean sheet is always great, it’s just a shame we couldn’t steal it in the end.”

The Pole was also quick to credit Charlton, who looked a better side than their league position would suggest as they, at times, played neat one-touch football which ensured the Blues’ backline needed to be on their toes.

“A point is a point.”
