IPSWICH Town boss Roy Keane believed that his side could have finished off the job earlier, following their 2-0 home win over Millwall this afternoon.

Jason Scotland tucked home his fifth goal of the season after just five minutes, following a bad error by Lions skipper Paul Robinson, and Grant Leadbitter then converted a 56th minute penalty to push Town up three places to 11th in the table.

But both teams had chances galore in an entertaining duel.

“I thought it was a cracking game and it could have ended up 7-4,” insisted Keane.

“We looked dangerous today, and I felt that we could have finished off the game earlier. But we’ve got to be happy with 2-0 and a clean-sheet.

“It’s been a better week than last week, but don’t call it a great week. I keep telling people not to panic, but to relax and chill out,” added Keane.

Millwall boss Kenny Jackett believed that his side should have been awarded a penalty, for handball by Leadbitter.

“For me, it was a clear-cut penalty. That was my first impression,” rued Jackett.

“I felt that we were on the wrong end of the two penalty incidents.”
