The Reaction: Ipswich Town 1 Blues 0

Lee Clark gives his reaction to his side's 1-0 defeat at Ipswich this afternoon.

Clark on the defeat:

"We've lost to a scruffy goal from our point of view. A mis-kick which has allowed their lad to just tap it in on the edge of the box. We're frustrated because the defensive side of the game, the effort and the attitude was there, but our quality of play in possession wasn't good enough, the decision making wasn't particularly good enough."

Clark on his side's attacking performance:

"We probably had the more clear cut chances, the couple that Lee Novak had but it wasn't to be and it was frustrating, we lost to a poor goal and in all honesty in terms of what we did with the ball we probably didn't do enough to get something from the game."

Clark on missed chances:

"Away from home you hope that those half chances get put away and you can go from there but that wasn't to be the case and the game petered out in terms of what we were doing with the ball, even at the death when we were getting set plays we weren't causing too many problems in the ipswich penalty area."

Clark on Novak's injury: 

"He's got a bit of tightness in his hamstring. We made the right decision because if that turns into a pull your looking at 4-8 weeks so he had to come off with that."
