Donald Love's thoughts after the defeat away to Ipswich Town in the Sky Bet League One

Donald Love reflects on Town's defeat away at Ipswich but feels Town can take away a few positives from the 90 minutes at Portman Road.

Town had a tough day at the office; "Very tough, we didn't really help ourselves going 2-0 down in the first 10 minutes but I think we fought, we fought hard. I think we got a lot of decisions go against us. At the end of the day, we've got a lot to learn from this. We're very close to being a good team and we've got to go and win against Wimbledon now."

"Two poor goals to giveaway but we take a lot to learn from it and after that we regrouped and did well and we can take a lot from it and created a lot of chances and I think overall we created the better chances even at 10 men I don't really think they created much but we've got to take a few positives from it but overall a 3-0 defeat and we have to learn from it."

Shaun Whalley received Town's first red card of the season after a wreckless challenge. "I think the lino had a better view of it and you can clearly see he didn't touch him, but they had a bad day didn't they the officials. Nothing really went for us, but we've got to take it on the chin and learn from it."

Town came close to scoring on a couple of occasions however, they just couldn't find an end product. "I think their keepers pulled off a few saves and even at 10 men they've not created much, bar the goal we give them early on and the second one was a penalty. They've had a few set-pieces but overall I think we had the better chances and if we were a bit more clinical, we could be a very good team."

"It's been a good start I think, got a lot of new players in and as I said were very close to being a few goals away from being a very good team and you can feel it on the pitch, relationships are starting to form and we've got go and beat teams like Wimbledon now and we all thought coming here today after beating Portsmouth that we can be one of the teams that teams can be afraid of but we still feel like we can be like that but obviously we learn a lot from today and carry on in the rest of the season." Love talks about the opening month of the season with being a Town player.

Love knows new midfielder, Sean Goss, well having played together previously. "I know he's got a wonder of a left foot and hopefully that can become useful on set pieces and hopefully that can get us a few goals."
