Huddersfield remain in 16th place, but Rotherham’s win at Brentford means the gap between the Terriers and the relegation places in now 10 points.
Huddersfield Town head coach David Wagner:
“There were incidents that did not go our way. One of them was a fair play moment for Nahki Wells. If Nahki gets a bigger hit then it’s clearer and he gets a penalty. But I want fair play from my players.
“If we win games I want it to be by fair play but if we get a penalty the result could be different.
“The first half was fantastic and it hurts that we got this result for our performance.
“The possession and shots tell you everything about this game. Usually you would get the result. Maybe I will feel better about it in the morning.”
Ipswich Town boss Mick McCarthy:
“This was a huge result for us. We needed a win and, as usual, my lads have come up trumps when we needed them.
“For all the chances Huddersfield had they didn’t take any and we were clinical. We rode our luck but everybody needs luck.
“The other night I was down, upset and angry and, to be honest, I’m sick of talking about the play-offs. If we get in there, brilliant, if not there’s not a damn thing I can do about it.
“If we had come away from Huddersfield having lost four on the bounce I can’t imagine how I would have felt.”
