SITO Castro admitted Town rode their luck against Wolves but is confident they can taste victory over QPR this coming Saturday.

The Spaniard, who is close to signing a new deal to extend his stay at Portman Road, put in a man of the match performance to help Blues grab a draw. He said: “It should have been three points for us but it was not to be. Wolves played well and will feel they should have won but we did our jobs.

“Now we can go into our next home game full of hope and confident we can get a win this time.”

Matt Richards reverted back to left-back with Fabian Wilnis suspended and Jay McEveley out for the rest of the season, but it was his third goal of the season that he enjoyed most.

He said: “The keeper got a hand to it but I struck it well so I'm pleased with that. That is my second penalty and three goals for me so far but I'm looking for a few more now that I have got going.”

Scott Barron went on for the final five minutes, plus three minutes of added time, to make his Football league debut for the Blues.

Barron said: “We were looking to close the game down and I tried to do what I could. I ran around a bit and got the ball a little. It was not great but I have played and that is another step in the right direction for me.

“It was brilliant to be involved and to make my league debut and a moment I will always treasure.”

Barron will be back in action tonight when the Blues reserves entertain Norwich City at Portman Road (7pm, kick off). Billy Clarke, Adam Proudlock and a host of the Academy players that beat Leeds in the FA Youth Cup last Wednesday will also be involved.

n The Blues Under-18s went down 2-1 at home to Southampton on Saturday afternoon despite taking a first-half lead in an entertaining and absorbing match.

Southampton twice hit the crossbar and had two goals disallowed, one for offside and the other when the referee failed to play advantage.

He also missed a Jack Haverson handball to deny the Saints a penalty, and all this in the first half.

Ed Upson got the Blues going with a volley which took a massive deflection to beat the keeper, but the visitors equalised before half-time and then netted a winner after the break.
