EVEN the Millwall players could not believe their luck as they were beating top-of-the league Ipswich.

Blues' recent signing Darren Currie revealed that the Lions were as stunned as the Town stars when they took a shock two-goal lead.

In the end the loss did not affect Town's Championship position but Currie believes three points slipped through their grasp.

He said: "A couple of their players were saying to our lads 'how are we winning this?'

Town were also unhappy that Tommy Miller was not awarded a penalty after being tripped by Marvin Elliott.

Currie said: "The referee wasn't really on the ball because we should have had a penalty in the first half as well. Between him and the linesman one should have given it."

Miller confirmed he had been fouled and said: "I had no reason to go down because I was through for a shot on goal.

"He caught me on the ankle and there was definite contact.

"The linesman was right in line with it and should have given it. I expected to see the flag go up but it didn't go our way."

And the Town players continued to shake their heads in disbelief after the game, especially after doing so well to climb to the top with victory over Wigan.

Currie said: "I don't know how we have lost. We have played well enough to win the game and on another day we would have scored a couple more goals.

"It is a kick in the teeth after Tuesday and going top of the league. We will obviously look to respond to this and put it right on Tuesday."

Shefki Kuqi scored Town's consolation but then missed a good chance for a leveller when he hit a volley too straight and it went wide.

The Finn said: "It was a good goal and I was lucky enough to be in the right place at the right time.

"Tommy struck a good shot and it came to me and I changed the direction but unfortunately it was not enough this time.

"Those sort of goals give you confidence so hopefully I can get a couple more in the next game."

After taking a Christmas break, the players will be looking for Lady Luck to be back at Portman Road.
