Keano Still Not Happy

Keano Still Not Happy

Roy Keane wasn't happy with the performance from his Ipswich side against Derby on Saturday afternoon, but I don't think he really cares - Ipswich Town actually won a game!

David Wright's second half header was enough to give Town that first win of the season at the 15th attempt in a match low on quality. But that doesn't matter to me, and neither does it matter to the Blues gaffer who was just relieved to take all three points at last.

He told the club site: 'That's probably the worst we've played for the last four or five weeks. It wasn't a pretty performance but we'll obviously take the points.

'The substitutes made a difference in the second half and we perhaps edged it.

'It's nice to get that first win but we know we have got a long way to go yet and have to look to move on from this, starting at Reading next week.'

Keano reserved special praise for Wrighty, but he admits that he is clueless as to why the left back was in their penalty box: 'I'm not sure what Wrighty was doing there but he got among 6ft 4in defenders and got his head on it. He gambled and we needed someone to do something different.'
