DEAN Bowditch believes the point against Wolves on Saturday could be the catalyst for the season.

The young striker feels Town have a terrific opportunity of getting all three points against Queens Park Rangers at Portman Road on Saturday and pushing on further from there.

Bowditch said: “A lot of fans might not have thought we would get anything from this game but we got a good point and they will be pleased.

“This can help us and we have a great chance now of getting all three points next Saturday against QPR.

“We know we have a better team than them and some of the play against Wolves showed what we can produce even though there were times we were chasing the game.”

Boos rang out when the 19-year-old was substituted and Adam Proudlock took his place and Bowditch admitted he was disappointed to be taken off, although accepts he still has room for improvement.

He said: “I felt I was doing well, getting behind them and threatening. It was one of my better performances as I have not been playing particularly well recently, so it was good for me.

“The manager has brought me off because he has thought something and Adam went on and did quite well.

“I will have a chat with the manager and see what he says about it but it is one of those things that happen in football.

“The more often that I'm on the pitch the more chance I have of scoring but I also need to create more for myself.

“I should have been cutting in from the right and shooting. There was a chance in the first half when I should have gone round to the back post but I was not on my toes and the ball went there and it could have been a tap-in for me.

“That is what changes games and something like that can change the season for me. So, hopefully, I will be involved against QPR and can do better.”

A deflected Colin Cameron goal gave Wolves the lead and Matt Richards scored the first goal Wolves have conceded for 470 minutes, when he converted a penalty, and Bowditch felt Richard Naylor should also have been given a spot-kick.

Bowditch said: “It was a good point for us. They are a good team and are doing well with some good players.

“We could even have won it because there were times in the game where we played the better football.

“Their goal was very flukey as it has come off Jason's wrist so it was very unfortunate.

“We got a deserved penalty because we were refused one in the first half when Bam Bam was kicked in the head.

“Anywhere else and it would have been a free-kick. Fossie did well to earn the penalty and Richo put it away well.”
