Keane appreciates backing

Ipswich Town manager Roy Keane may not be delighted with the results his players are producing on the pitch, but he is more than happy with the support from the club's fans. The Irishman was just moments away from claiming a first league win against Watford last night, but Nathan Ellington scored a last-gasp leveller. But he believes the fans rapturous applause as they walked off the pitch reflected their endeavours on the field despite the late disappointment. Speaking to the club's official website, Keane said: "I think the reception the players got says something about the performance but it's also a reflection on the supporters at this club. "I've said many times that it's easy to support your team when you are winning every week, but when you are on a run that we are on - and we're not proud of it - for the fans to applaud the players off it gives us some hope."
