Manager’s time is not up - Town star

IPSWICH TOWN: Roy Keane’s position as Blues manager may be hanging by a thread , but defender Mark Kennedy says that the Irishman’s time is not up.

Yesterday’s 1-0 home defeat by Nottingham Forest saw Town drop to within three points of the relegation places with a record of seven defeats in their last nine league matches.

But Kennedy, who has been a professional for 18 years, insists Keane should be given more time.

“I’ll tell you when a manager’s time is up,” said the 34-year-old. “It’s when players’ performances and attitude dip, when they are not doing it, when they look like they don’t care, are not bothered and don’t get upset when they lose.

“Anyone watching Ipswich Town can see that the players are fully committed.

“The game is all about opinions, but I‘d be surprised if any Town fan went away yesterday feeling that we had not given our all.

“The least we deserved was a draw and I’m not stupid I know a good team when I see one.”
