Keane: We deserved win

Published Add your comment

Ipswich boss Roy Keane insisted his side deserved all three points following their dramatic 3-2 win over Coventry.

Pablo Counago netted the Tractor Boys' winner seven minutes into stoppage time - despite the fact only four were due to be played. Incredibly, Coventry had equalised in the sixth added minute and thought they had nicked a point - only for the hosts to win with virtually the last kick of the game.

"We had the game won, threw it away and then managed to nick it at the end," said Keane.

"Ultimately, though, we got what we deserved.

"We played some decent stuff and Pablo's finish at the end was worthy of winning most games.

"I had no issue with the time being added on. When they say four minutes it's a minimum of four minutes.

"Even if the game had finished 2-2 I wouldn't have been complaining about the officials - far from it.

"I've said it before but you play to the whistle. I've been taught that since I was six or seven years of age. Anyone who's going to complain about that is out of order."
