Gaffer Roy Keane admits that Ipswich are in a relegation battle after their 2-0 defeat to Preston at Deepdale.

It was the same old story for Town, who didn’t take their chances. Tamas Priskin missed a good chance, but also had a goal very harshly ruled out for offside.

Keane says that Town still lack a ‘cutting edge and will continue to be in a relegation battle unless they can start scoring more goals.

He told the club site: ‘We had our chances again and didn’t take them and that’s very disappointing. We looked fairly comfortable but we lacked a cutting edge and it looks as though we have to play unbelievably well to score one or two goals.

‘When you are only scoring the odd goal, you are always going to be under pressure because at some stage, the opposition are going to create their own chances.

‘We’re looking over our shoulder now and we’ve got to fight our way up the table.’

He added that they now have to play ugly if they want to survive in the division: ‘The players have got to roll their sleeves up and scrap for the points. Our first priority is to get away from the bottom of the table and then we’ll see where it takes us.’
