Jordan Spence believes his late leveller at Hull shows the character of the Ipswich Town squad.
Spence stretched to poke home with just two minutes left to rescue a 2-2 draw at the KCOM Stadium, with the Blues having let a lead slip following David McGoldrick’s early opener.
The equaliser was Spence’s third of the season, and came after McGoldrick missed a penalty, with the defender delighted his side showed their true spirit once again as they secured their first draw of the season.
“It was a bit of a crazy game,” he said.
“I felt we were good value for the draw. We played really well in the second half and they possibly scored their second goal when they were in the ascendency.
You may also want to watch:
“When they went 2-1 up, it lifted the crowd and they settled for a while because they were obviously nervy. We managed to stay in there and when you’re only one goal behind, you’re conscious that you can stay in it for moments late in the game.”
When asked whether it would have been easy for Ipswich head’s to drop following McGoldrick’s miss, Spence replied: “That’s not us. Anyone who watches us can’t doubt the spirit and the belief we’ve got. The subs all made a difference.

“Penalties will be missed. That was our first one of the season, so hopefully there’s more to come.
“I think on the balance of things we could have won it, they could have won it and we could have drawn it, I don’t think there was one team who can come away from the game saying they deserve to win.
“But it was a right good game, entertaining I’m sure. We conceded two goals again so we’re disappointed but we’ve shown again that we don’t give up, we keep going and that will stand us in good stead.
“We’ve done that a few times this season which has thankfully resulted in some positive points, and whether Didzy (McGoldrick) misses a penalty or I score I goal we’re all in it together.
“It’s a point for us and we get down the road, recover and get ready for the next game.”
That next game comes against Sheffield Wednesday at Portman Road on Wednesday night.
