Keane in firing line

Roy Keane found himself back under pressure as his Ipswich Town side crashed 3-1 at home to Swansea in the Championship yesterday. And Keane admitted his side's form was "unacceptable" after Swansea came from behind at Portman Road.

After a promising start to the season, Ipswich have now lost eight of their last 10 Championship fixtures and although they are in the last four of the Carling Cup, Keane still finds criticism coming his way. League form is what matters most to Ipswich fans.

"No excuses," he said. "We've got to do better. We've got no one to blame but ourselves, in terms of our defending, the chances we missed and not dealing with the setback of their first goal.

"It's like Groundhog Day. We're doing the same things over and over again and I'm saying the same things over and over again.

"I probably need to receive criticism and eight defeats in 10 games is unacceptable. I bought players in the summer and I brought players here on loan."
