"I've been in this game a long time and know that there's still a long way to go," says Freedman

Dougie Freedman was left disappointed, after his side were edged out in a closely-contested game against Ipswich Town at Portman Road.

Carlos Edwards fired a late winner for the Suffolk club, as Wanderers’ eight-game unbeaten run came to an end.

Speaking in his post-match press conference, Freedman said: “We are obviously disappointed with the result. The lads in the dressing at full time were upset that we didn’t win the game.

“I felt we were dominant in possession throughout, but that we could have possibly worked the goalkeeper a little more when we were going forward. 

“We did make chances and created the opportunities in the final third, but that final decision as to whether to shoot or pass wasn’t quite right.

“The commitment was certainly there from both sets of players and I thought it was a tough Championship game, with two sides going all out for the win. 

“Ipswich are a difficult side to play against. Mick has got them working hard and they, like us, fought for every loose ball. 

“I’ve been in this game a long time and know that there’s still a long way to go.

“The important thing is that we don’t look back. We’ll now go away and regroup over the international break and come back fresh for our next away trip to Charlton.

“There’s no doubt in my mind that we can go on another unbeaten run if we play the way we are at the moment.”
