BLUES boss Jim Magilton is convinced Town will win more than they lose if they continue to perform at home as they did against Plymouth.

Ipswich have now won just once in seven league matches and have drawn four of their past seven home games which has meant they have been kept out of the play-off places and have dropped to tenth in the Championship.

They had enough chances against Argyle to win five games but after hitting a post and seeing two efforts cleared off the line ended up grateful for appoint after Neil Alexander saved a penalty.

Magilton said: “Overall it was a fantastic effort from my players and we showed a real desire to get a result so if we carry on playing like that they will win more than they lose.”

Magilton paid tribute to Plymouth's resilience and said: “It was a magnificent effort from them considering they went to Portsmouth and lost 2-1 so considering the journeyman and taking everything into consideration it was a great effort by Plymouth.

“On any other day we would have won by three or four as we had enough chances. Pablo hit a post and that was a great chance, Jon and Fanny had god chances.

“We were unlucky. The keeper made a fantastic save for us again and keeps us in the game. If they had scored it would have given them something to hold on to and really dig in. defensively they worked their socks off and they will be pleased with the point.

“They were also dangerous on the counter attack. We were so eager to score that organisationally we didn't stop that which I was disappointed with.”

New boy Alan Quinn impressed on his debut and Magilton added: “Alan Quinn is a good player and showed a real desire to play and will get even better.”

Magilton confirmed midfielder Gavin Williams was left out of the 16 and was not injured.

Plymouth boss Paul Sturrock was not impressed with his side who he said started lethargically.

He described his back line as 'four deaf mutes who did not communicate'.
