Roy Keane knows his side should have taken all three points against Bristol City on Saturday.

Ipswich left Ashton Gate unable to break the deadlock, despite having twenty one efforts on goal. A combination of superb goalkeeping from Robins stopper Dean Gerken and general wastefulness in sight of goal meant that Town had to settle for a point, even though it extends the unbeaten run to eight games.

But the Town boss knows that his side need to pick up wins, especially in games like these that they should have won. He told the club site: ‘We had some great chances and I would have expected us to have taken at least one of them. It’s frustrating – people might look at it as four points from two away games and think that’s okay but in the position we are in, we need wins and we should have had one today.’

Keano believes his side are improving game by game, and the fact that he and his players are disappointed after a draw away to Bristol City shows this: ‘I suppose it’s sign of the progress we are making in that we are disappointed in only getting a draw at a place like Ashton Gate but that doesn’t make it any easier. We should have won.’

Finally, he refused to blame Pablo for Ipswich’s failure to bring a win back to Suffolk, despite the Spaniard missing a gilt-edged chance with just minutes left: ‘Pablo should have scored and with that chance coming so late on, it would have put us in a great position but we should have been ahead at the break anyway, possibly by two goals.’
