Frustration for Jewell at both ends of the pitch

PAUL Jewell said he was left disappointed by the action at both ends of the pitch after watching his Ipswich Town side lose 1-0 at home to Hull City.

A lack of chances and a poor winner conceded – Tommy Smith left isolated and then beaten by goalscorer Matty Fryatt – was how the Town boss summed proceedings.

Jewell said: “There wasn’t that many chances in the game. They have come away from home and done a job on us. “They’ve changed their formation and stifled us and fair play to them. At home, you expect more than three or four chances.”

And of Fryatt’s 76th minute winner, Jewell added: “We get the ball on the edge of their box and one ball later and it is in the back of our net. It is obviously hugely disappointing.

“We have to get used to drawing games, it’s either win or lose with us. We’ve got to be dogged. We could have been sat here with four points. We wouldn’t have been happy but at least we would have got something out of the game.”
