BLUES goalscorer Tommy Miller underlined the importance of beating Nottingham Forest on Wednesday after Ipswich Town once again flopped at home.

Miller netted the equaliser against Blackpool and said afterwards: “There is still belief that we can make the play offs.

“It was two points dropped no doubt, so now we have got to best Forest on Wednesday night in a massive game and get back to winning ways at Portman Road.

“We were so good last season at Portman Road, this year been patchy. I don't know why but we have to find the answers and quickly because we are running out of games and points.

“We are still all pulling in the right direction and we've got to keep believing and keep working at and hopefully it will come right for us.”

It took an Alex Baptiste goal for Blackpool to stir Ipswich and Miller added: “We didn't get going until they scored. It was a slow start which is frustrating.

“I was delighted to score, need to get more. I got the ball back of Pablo and put it in the corner.”

But Town failed to find a second and remain outside the top 10.

Miller said: “Our final ball was not the best. The quality is not there and we have to work on that.

“Second half we were better with a few half chances but the ball wouldn't go in.

“Pablo had a header right at the end that on another day goes in but it wasn't our day. We've got to make sure it's our day on Wednesday night.”

It was Miller's fourth goal of the season and the 46th of his Town career.
