TOMMY Miller today spelt out the importance of Ipswich Town's Championship game at Burnley tomorrow night.

“The sooner we win away from home the better,” said the midfielder, who was left as dismayed as anybody at the lacklustre display in Saturday's 3-1 reverse at Hull City.

“We need to sort things out.

“We cannot keep going on like this.

“We must learn and learn quickly from the mistakes we are making away from Portman Road.

“It has to stop, and it has to stop now.

“The gaffer had a few words after the 4-0 defeat at West Brom, and we expected things to be better at Hull, but they weren't.

“We know we played well for the opening 25 minutes and that with a little bit of luck we could have been two or three goals ahead.

“But it is the scoreline that people read. It is the scoreline that matters.”

Disappointed Town manager Jim Magilton has threatened to make changes for the visit to Turf Moor, and he has confirmed that he is still doing his damndest to strengthen his squad.

Miller, yet to score since his return to Portman Road in the summer, struck the post and had a deflected shot brilliantly saved as Ipswich carved Hull apart in the early stages.

“We played some great stuff,” added Miller. “We created chances and it looked just a matter of time.

“But we did not score, and at the other end we gave away some disappointing goals.

“The marking for set pieces was not up to standard and we paid the penalty against good players like Jay-Jay Okocha who has appeared on the world stage.

“We did not do enough after the interval and we have been left shaking our heads in disbelief at what is happening.”

Full back David Wright missed the Hull game with an infected heel, but he will come back into contention tomorrow where Magilton has an otherwise clean bill of health after Saturday.
