PAUL Jewell was dismayed to see his Ipswich Town side kiss goodbye to their winning run, right at the death in a 1-1 draw at Barnsley this afternoon.

Town were heading for a fourth league win on the trot, when substitute Jason Scotland slotted them into an 83rd minute lead, only to be denied by Jacob Mellis’ 93rd minute equaliser.

“It feels like a defeat to lose a goal so late in the game,” rued Jewell.

“I feel so sick. It was not a great game, and the pitch was certainly not conducive to passing.

“But one mistake and we were punished. Marton Fulop made some good saves, but I don’t think they were breathtaking saves. I wouldn’t say that he kept us in the game.

“Jason came on and got his goal, and that’s what I want him in the spotlight for,” added Jewell, who confirmed that there had no further developments in the last 24 hours about Scotland’s possible loan move to Swansea.
