Keane feels pressure

Ipswich manager Roy Keane admits the pressure is building following his side's recent run of poor results.

Saturday's loss to Hull was the Tractor Boys' third successive defeat and with Town sliding down the Championship table, Keane is under pressure to improve results on the pitch.

Keane has labelled Sunday's East Anglian derby against Norwich as a must-win game. "You can't keep losing football matches, because the pressure builds," he said. "The next one then becomes a must-win game, and sometimes you take silly gambles, but we want to be hard to beat next week.

"Despite me talking a good game, you have to go out and do the business, and we haven't done that. The pressure builds and the pressure builds to try and get the right result with the next game."

Norwich, meanwhile, have signed Arsenal midfielder Henri Lansbury on a 28-day emergency loan deal.
