WE didn't get what we deserved but in football, as in life, you didn't always get what you deserve.
We have to take it on the chin and move on. To a man I was extremely proud of them.
If George (O'Callaghan) has kicked out and been naughty then he will be dealt with internally but it looked a harsh sending off to me.
He played very well in the first half and we dominated the first half and came out in the second half and carried on.
As for the disallowed goal, the linesman was dozing and I think it was a goal, it should have stood.

We gave Watford due respect because they are a Premiership club but I always felt we could get something.
We came with a game plan and it worked a treat. We allowed their centre-halves the ball because we knew they would give it back to us.
We were confident in possession, although we could have been better with the ball.
We want that sort of passion and drive from the players every time they pull on that shirt. We had 4,500 fans here and they will have gone home immensely proud of their team and rightly so.
Ipswich manager Jim Magilton
FOR 85 minutes Ipswich were the better side, which is a problem when you play for 90.
I feel for Ipswich because their fans were great, the team gave their all but that happens. We have been that soldier but the bottom line is that we're through and now it's onwards and upwards, starting with Wednesday's game against Wigan.
The goal looked offside to me but I'm not sure what happened with the sending off as I didn't see it.
I thought Ipswich did very, very well. Sometimes you have to ride your luck and we did that, although we haven't had much of that ourselves this season so perhaps we were due a bit.
It's no consolation for them to hear me say that I thought they were the better side - as has happened to me too many times this season - but it's all about winning and we won.
We found it difficult to come to terms with their formation here today and we had to do some sorting out at half-time.
Last year we had this habit of not playing particularly well at times but still winning games. I sensed that, although we weren't playing well against Ipswich, we weren't going to get beaten.
