Alex Rae says that Blackpool were guilty of poor defending from a set piece in losing late to Ipswich Town at Bloomfield Road.

Blackpool assistant manager Alex Rae has said that the nature of this afternoon's 3-2 defeat to Ipswich Town was disappointing.

It was a late goal from Daryl Murphy that snatched the points at Bloomfield Road, which left the Tangerines' management frustrated at conceding from a set piece.

"We pride ourselves on our defence and to lose the game from bad defending is disappointing," PA quotes Rae as saying.

"We told them Murphy was a threat from set-pieces - he scored from one against Barnsley last week - but we didn't deal with him at all.

"But when all is said and done, we've only lost twice in the first three months of the season and we've made a good start."

The North-West outfit are fourth in the Championship.
