Sam Ricketts reflects on Town's loss against Ipswich Town

Sam Ricketts reflects on Town's 2-1 loss to Ipswich Town.

Shrewsbury Town were unable to leave Ipswich Town with any points after the Tractor Boys staged a 2-1 comeback victory over the Shrews.

Ollie Norburn’s first half penalty wasn’t enough to secure any points as the home side pulled two goals back in the second period to secure the comeback win.

Sam Ricketts was disappointed with the result and was left frustrated that his team’s performance didn’t weald any points.

On the result:

“We had stonewall penalties dismissed and we were only awarded one. 98% of the game was very good but the goals we gave away were very, very poor. You can’t give goals away like that, they were poor. I’d also like to see their winning goal to check for offside because I think it was.

“I don’t think an away team has scored a goal here in the league. We got that goal and should have scored more. We had some very good opportunities to score and I think Ipswich were very lucky to win the game today.

“The goals came from individual errors today and you can’t legislate for that. No player means to make mistakes but both goals are easily avoidable. The performances deserved more. We looked solid and looked dangerous on the break. There was so much good but we’ve undone ourselves with two mistakes.”
