Jonas Knudsen insisted the Ipswich Town dressing room are happy with four points from two games this week, despite admitting they let two slip at home to Birmingham last night.
The Blues came from behind to draw 1-1 with the men from St Andrews last night, with Brett Pitman’s penalty cancelling out David Cotterill’s opener following a slip by Christophe Berra.
Town had chances to win it in the second half, with Luke Chambers, Ainsley Maitland-Niles and Daryl Murphy all passing up good opportunities, but Knudsen insisted the team are happy with their week’s work, having won 1-0 at Leeds on Tuesday.
“I think so,” said the Dane, when asked if the Blues deserved more than a point last night.
“We wanted to take the win and we pushed in the second half, we pressed them a lot and did well but we couldn’t score.

“Sometimes in football you have to take just one point. We had a lot of chances but we couldn’t take them, we spoke at half-time and said we needed to go out there and beat them, because we could do this.
“We’ve taken four points from two games which is pretty good so we’re happy with that.”

Knudsen was also full of praise for the Ipswich Town fans, who he says have made him feel welcome during his first few weeks in England, following his summer move from Esbjerg.
“It’s fantastic, I like to be here and I have a lot of thanks for my teammates, the manager and all the staff,” he said.
“But a special thanks to the fans, they’ve helped me so much and you know everyone’s behind you which helps you perform better.
“They give me so much and I want to give as much as I can back to them.”
