There’s no time for Ipswich Town to feel sorry for themselves.
So says Aaron Cresswell, the left-back insisting that the Blues’ play-off hopes aren’t over following Saturday’s lacklustre 2-0 defeat at Middlesbrough.
Danny Graham scored twice as the Teesiders ended a 12-hour goal drought with a classy performance full of pace and trickery. Town, by contrast, only gave the home keeper a meaningful shot to save in stoppage-time.
The only silver lining was that Reading and Brighton drew 1-1, meaning the gap to sixth-spot remains at four points.
“That wasn’t like us and how we have been this season,” said Cresswell. “We’ll look back on this one and see what went wrong, but we can’t dwell on it.
You may also want to watch:
“There are still 12 games left and we’ve still got to play a lot of the teams around us.
“We need to put together a little run to stand any chance of making the top six, but we have to keep believing that we can do it.”
