Ipswich Town captain Lee Evans has told TWTD that the team will only get better and better as the season goes on after the Tractor Boys fell to defeat away at Burton Albion.
It appeared that things were looking up for Paul Cook’s side at the Pirelli Stadium as an own goal by Thomas O’Connor put them level with the Brewers after Joe Powell’s opener 19 minutes in before a second half strike from Lucas Atkins just four minutes from the final minute of the game saw the home side triumph.
As a result Ipswich are yet to have picked up their first league victory of the season, with the club having also been held to an opening day draw with newly promoted Morecambe at Portman Road on the opening day of the campaign.
Now Evans has moved to calm any fears that people may have about their form, as he stated the following recently:
“I don’t think there’s too much the staff can do about it, I think it’s up to us to not make those errors and I’m sure we’ll get better and better as the season goes on.”

The Tractor Boys have made 14 signings so far this season and it appears that they could soon add to that number, with the club closing in on the signing of Accrington Stanley centre back Cameron Burgess.
Ipswich are back in league action on Tuesday as they head to Cheltenham Town.
Overall it is fair to say that the team hasn’t really gelled at Ipswich and it will take time as Evans appears to stress in his comments.
When you bring in so many new players, it will naturally take a few months to gain the sort of cohesion amongst the group that will breed success in the long term.
Cook has put together a squad that is the envy of a lot of other clubs in the division and the expectations will be so high at Portman Road now.
If they don’t start to pick up their form soon, it would be fair to assume that the pressure will begin to mount on the former Portsmouth and Wigan Athletic boss moving forwards.
