Dougie Freedman: Criticised his team for not taking their chances

Mark Davies' long-range effort gave Wanderers a flying start but they failed to add to their lead and DJ Campbell levelled with a 70th-minute penalty before Michael Chopra netted a last-gasp winner for Town after a handling error by Adam Bogdan.

"Ipswich thoroughly deserved to win the match and we've got no complaints," Freedman said.

"I felt for 70 minutes we played very well and were the better team because we were creating opportunities. We probably actually did enough to win the match.

"We didn't take those chances though, and in the last 15 minutes we were a bit edgy.

"That gave them the impetus and the chance to make us pay and they did that to us in the end."

Speaking about the performance of goalkeeper Bogdan, Freedman added: "In football there are so many ups and downs and Adam has had so many of those ups recently.

"It was a difficult shot to stop and I thought that he was one of our better players overall and I think the message is that we've got to see our games out."

terling needs to be told though that upon entering the Arsenal squad he will re-enact the final scene from Highlander where he will be thrown around a warehouse by cartoon dragons and then be a mere mortal that will only ever spend three to four weeks a season playing football and the rest on the physio's bed. There can be only one.....player available at The Emirates.

Arsenal interest in Sterling

he game changed in our favour when Carrick came on. We were able to play further up the pitch due to having a player who can give and go with the ball and keep possession. Yet barkley made some runs and Townsend scored a good goal but carrick's inclusion and chiellini's withdrawal made the biggest difference to the flow of the game

o, you've not silenced anyone Andros, i'm afraid. We know you can score a great goal, and it's really handy to have your direct running and willingness to shoot on the bench. But until you can do the other things expected of a winger (beat the man, put a decent cross in, stay wide etc) then you can't expect more than a regular cameo. Wonderful goal though, what a hit! No wonder Buffon wanted the shirt.
