Keane won't celebrate leaving drop zone

Published Add your comment

Roy Keane refused to get carried away after his Ipswich side moved out of the Championship's bottom three, following their 3-1 victory against Blackpool.

The Blues clambered out of the relegation zone for the first time this season, leapfrogging Sheffield Wednesday and Reading.

He said: "We're out of the bottom three and it's a relief, when you've been there since the start of the season. But it's not something we're proud of. Don't worry - we won't be celebrating."

He added: "We could have won six or 7-1, given the chances we created, especially in the second half. They were unbelievable - thank God they didn't cost us otherwise I'd be saying the same things I've been saying for the last few weeks.

"It would have been a nice boost for the players and sent a message out to everyone that we're not such a bad team. But let's not get too greedy or selfish. We'll take the three goals and move on."
