Magilton told the Ipswich Town official site: “We started brightly, really brightly but we didn’t sustain it and in the one moment of real quality in the first-half, we scored with a terrific goal from Pablo

“That is what we want from Pablo, those runs in behind their defence and when he does that he is a real threat.

“It was a great finish from him and going in at half-time, all you want is a clean sheet yet we gave them a goal straightaway. It’s times like that as a manager when you pull your hair out.

“The second goal was a bad goal as well but probably came against the run of play. I thought the changes we made, with Owen (Garvan) and Tommy (Miller) going on gave us a platform to build on and certainly helped improve things but then we are chasing the game after giving them another goal.

“Pablo took his second goal well and that will be good for his confidence and when you are a goal down with 10 minutes left then you take the draw.

“So it’s a mixture of relief and disappointment. We didn’t pass the ball well, certainly at the back and we were very panicky in that area and that shouldn’t happen with the experience we have there.

“I can only think it’s a sign of the nerves that we have playing at home because it’s not like that in training or in away matches but it’s something the players have to deal with.”
