‘We have to look at ourselves as individuals’ – Richard Wright

RICHARD Wright’s homecoming to Portman Road was spoilt after Reading scored twice in injury time to condemn Ipswich Town to their fifth straight defeat.

The 34-year-old was a surprise inclusion in Paul Jewell’s side today, getting the nod over Arran Lee-Barrett with David Stockdale out with a shoulder injury.

But despite the delight of being back at his home town club, Wright’s third Ipswich debut ended in huge disappointment for all.

Wright said: “As much as we didn’t play that well today, we were grinding out a result and we needed to hold on – but unfortunately we didn’t again. There is great disappointment in the dressing room.

“We have to look at ourselves as individuals and make sure we don’t make any errors and see games out. 2-2 wouldn’t have been a bad result but it didn’t happen – the good thing is that we have a game on Tuesday.”
