Smith admits Ipswich Town now have no margin for error
Tommy Smith knows recent results have left Ipswich Town with very little room for error as they bid to make the play-offs.
The 1-0 loss to Rotherham prior to the international break and yesterday’s 0-0 draw with Wolves leave the Blues five points behind sixth-placed Derby, with seven games to go.
As a result, the defender knows the Blues can’t afford to drop many more points.
“We’ve got seven games left now so we need to take as many points as we can which is a hard ask,” he told Ipswich Player.
“We’re five points off the play-offs now so we can’t drop many more.
“I thought we played quite well against Wolves. We weren’t happy with our performance against Rotherham so over the last couple of weeks we’ve been working hard on trying to play better football.
“We also worked on having that ruthless streak, which we need to have, but unfortunately we couldn’t find the back of the net today.

“We had the chances to win the game, but I think it’s important in these kind of games that you don’t get beat. It’s important to stay resolute and the worst you’ll come out with is the 0-0.
“If we can keep on keeping clean sheets, we have the players that can score the goals so I’m sure they will come soon.”
