We were too anxious - Jewell

NEW Ipswich Town boss Paul Jewell could not fault his players for their effort, but ultimately it was a losing start to his managerial reign at Millwall this afternoon.

Tamas Priskin’s 26th minute finish put Town ahead, but an equaliser just before half-time from Danny Schofield and then Steve Morison’s close-range goal on 76 minutes condemned Town to another defeat.

“There was plenty of effort. I couldn’t fault them for that or the commitment,” insisted Jewell.

“But we were just a bit anxious in possession, and I think the goal we conceded just before half-time changed it, in that we could have gone in with something to hang onto at half-time.

Town’s next outing is at home to Doncaster Rovers next Saturday.
