Ipswich `world away' from Championship best - Keane
27 October 2010 10:30
Ipswich manager Roy Keane insists his side are "a world away" from the leading clubs in the npower Championship after his side picked up a 3-1 Carling Cup win over Northampton.
Ipswich have lost their past three league games to slide down the table and Keane is determined to add to his striking options.
A move for West Brom striker Ishmael Miller remains an option but Keane is doubtful of luring him to Portman Road.
Keane said: "People think I'm doom and gloom but you look at Cardiff last night (Monday) and we are a world away from that.
"We are miles away from the likes of Cardiff and QPR and people need to realise that. I appreciate my glass is always half empty but that is the reality.
"Ishmael Miller will have plenty of options. We are in the market and if you think we are the only club in for a player like him then you are mad. He is a good player and good players are always in my thoughts. I don't think we'd be the first option for players from Premier League clubs in the midlands or the north west. We have trouble attracting players down here as they don't often want to move away so we may have to look at younger players."
