Brighton boss Gus Poyet expressed his frustrations at the cautious tactics adopted by visitors Ipswich.
The Seagulls needed a late equaliser by Will Buckley to salvage a 1-1 draw at home to struggling Town.
It pushed Poyet's team down to third and the Uruguayan said: "I'm starting to think everybody is rating us higher than we are.
"They rate us as a top team in this division and come here with a plan, to nick a goal and defend.
"That makes us put in all the effort. It becomes all about us and you need quality for that. But we need to get used to that because it is going to be the plan for every team that comes to the Amex.
"I can't ask for more. We took risks, we played with one defender and went for the win. It worked for Birmingham and it nearly worked for Ipswich, so credit to them."
