Under-fire Ipswich manager Paul Jewell praised his players' spirit after they picked up a well-earned point in a 1-1 draw against high-flying Brighton at the Amex.

Daryl Murphy fired the lowly Tractor Boys into the lead in the first half, but Will Buckley struck from close range with 10 minutes to go to ensure the points were shared.

Town have now gone seven league games without a win but Jewell insists the togetherness in the squad will help to eventually turn the club's fortunes around, and said: "We're disappointed not to have got the three points after leading for so long but they are a good team and very difficult to stop. We frustrated them and kept our shape very well."
