Keane looks on bright side

Published Add your comment

Roy Keane insists it is far from "doom and gloom" at bottom-of-the-table Ipswich despite being held to a 1-1 draw at home to Swansea.

Town are still without a win in 12 Coca-Cola Championship games and fell behind inside seven minutes when Craig Beattie netted for the Welshmen.

But Pablo Counago - who rejected a summer move to the Swans - netted an equaliser eight minutes later and Keane said: "We're making progress and this gives us something to build on."

He added: "It's certainly not doom and gloom. The players are training well and I can't fault them, but we just can't seem to put the ball in the back of the net.

"We had good chances in the second half and should have won the game. It wasn't ideal to concede another early goal.

"I'm not sure if the boy was offside, but you have to deal with setbacks in a game. You haven't got a divine right to score first. Swansea keep the ball well. They have got good players, but we had the better chances and I don't think we looked like a side at the bottom of the table."
