Lee Martin will not be spitting out his dummy
Lee Martin admits that now is not the time for “spitting out dummies” and “moping around.”
Winger Martin scored a stupendous solo goal at Birmingham City on Wednesday night, but it was not enough to prevent Ipswich Town from crashing to an 11th defeat in their last 14 fixtures.
Now manager Paul Jewell faces the difficult task of raising the spirits of his downcast players, ahead of this afternoon’s vital home game against Blackpool.
Martin is certainly not going to waste time sulking, insisting: “We are not throwing in the towel yet, we will keep pushing on. It’s not going great but we are all committed. We all want to work for each other, for the staff and the manager.
“We don’t want to walk around sulking and going on about things not going our way. “We can either spit out our dummies, or we roll up our sleeves and go again.

“The fans will be behind us against Blackpool. It’s down to us, there’s no point in hiding, you need people to be brave and get on it. The only way I think we can turn the corner is to be brave and be committed.
“Of course it’s so tough when the boys’ confidence is rock bottom. But we mustn’t mope around. I can certainly see a way out of it, 100%,” added Martin.
