HONEST Simon Walton admitted Ipswich Town got away with a lucky three points after a string of important decisions went their way against Southampton.
The on-loan Blues midfielder from Charlton confessed that a header from Jason de Vos crossed the line and should have given saints a draw, and that the Alan Lee penalty that Walton converted was a fortunate decision. The 18-year-old straight-talking Yorkshireman said: “I was stood right on the post and the ball crossed the line but I was not going to say anything.
“Also, it was a bit of a soft penalty but we will take what we are given. You see them given week in and week out.
You may also want to watch:
“There will be times when we get those decisions go against us, but hopefully not too many.
“There will be games that we dominate and don't win, for example how we didn't win against Hull I don't know - so it is swings and roundabouts.”

Alex Bruce and Gavin Williams are both walking disciplinary tightropes now after picking up four bookings so far this season. One more will see them suspended for a game, although Alex Bruce misses Saturday's game at Birmingham City anyway as part of the transfer agreement between the clubs.
