Keane slams 'unacceptable' form

Published Add your comment

Ipswich manager Roy Keane admitted his side's form was "unacceptable" after Swansea came from behind to record a 3-1 win at Portman Road.

Keane's side forged ahead through Andros Townsend but some more woeful defending allowed the Swans to pick up victory through a brace from Craig Beattie either side of a scrambled strike from Joe Allen. The former Manchester United captain has seen injury and suspension unsettle his back four but he could offer no excuses for their showing.

He said: "No excuses. We've got to do better. We've got no-one to blame but ourselves, in terms of our defending, the chances we missed and not dealing with the setback of their first goal."

Keane added: "Their first goal was soft and the second was comical, but then I'm pretty sure I had the same conversation last week (after the defeat at Norwich). It's like Groundhog Day. We're doing the same things over and over again and I'm saying the same things over and over again.

"I probably need to receive criticism and eight defeats in 10 games is unacceptable. I bought players in the summer and I brought players here on loan."
