A strong spirit

24 October 2015

Dougie Freedman praised the spirit of his players after they came from behind to earn a 1-1 with draw with Ipswich Town this afternoon.

Debutant Liam Trotter hit an injury-time equaliser for The Reds to cancel out Jonathan Parr’s opener.

Speaking after the game, Freedman said: “We made sure we kept on going to the end and I was very happy with the spirit and performance. From that I believe the results will come.

“After they scored we regrouped and put the pressure back on them.

“We changed it around a little bit, and at least we got a point out of the game.

“We should have been at least 3-0 up at half-time. It’s a common theme right now that our good performances aren’t getting the right result.”

Trotter was the man to rescue a point and Freedman was pleased with the contribution of his new signing, who started in place of the suspended Henri Lansbury.

The manager said: “I thought he was excellent today. He came into the group and kept on going right to the end.

“He deserved his goal for a fantastic debut and a great performance.”
