Boss Keith Millen insists Bristol City must tighten up defensively after conceding two more goals at Ipswich.
The Robins have now had 12 goals against them in their five matches this season following the 2-0 defeat at Portman Road.
Millen said: "I was quite pleased with how we played in the first half. I hoped that we might have given ourselves a platform to go on and win the game. But unfortunately, we've given two goals away that you wouldn't be happy about if it was schoolboys conceding.
"It doesn't matter how well you play. If you concede goals like we did today it's always going to be an uphill task.
"I'm concerned by the number of goals we're conceding. We can't hide from the fact we've conceded too many."
