Moore defends keeper following schoolboy error

Darren Moore stood by Bailey Peacock-Farrell after he gifted Ipswich a late equaliser at Portman Road this afternoon.

After seeing the keeper drop the ball at his feet, unaware that Macauley Bonne was behind him and allowing the striker to nip in and set up the home side’s goal, Moore said: “If you break down his performance, he has been absolutely terrific in what he is doing.

“It’s a harsh lesson but he will learn from it. The positives far outweigh the negatives and we are 100 per cent behind him.

“It is just one of those things that happens in football. He’s a top, top goalkeeper and I firmly believe he will play regularly in the Premier League.”

On the team performance, Moore said: “Overall it was another positive performance in the right direction.

“We could have made better decisions and kept the ball better but it was a good, solid away day. It was a committed performance and I thought we dominated for the away team.”
