Ipswich boss Paul Jewell felt his charges were unfortunate to drop two points in the 1-1 draw with high-flying Brighton at the Amex Stadium.
Daryl Murphy fired the visitors into the lead before Will Buckley struck from close range with 10 minutes to go to ensure the points were shared.
Town have now gone seven league games without a win but Jewell insists the togetherness in the squad will help to eventually turn the club's fortunes around.
Jewell said: "We're disappointed not to have got the three points after leading for so long but they are a good team and very difficult to stop. We frustrated them and kept our shape very well.
"We should have gone two up in the second half and been out of sight right after half-time, but if you don't kill sides like Brighton off when you get the chance, they will come back and hurt you.
"We've conceded a lot from set plays this season and we have taken a lot of flak, but the lads have shown that the spirit is still there. We have the togetherness in the squad to turn the bad run around.
"Every match in the Championship is a battle. I thought we looked more compact as a team against Brighton than in previous matches and we need to maintain that against Cardiff."
