Bristol City manager Derek McInnes admitted the better team won following their comprehensive 3-0 defeat at Ipswich.
Tommy Smith headed their second midway through the second half and Andy Drury lashed in the third from 25 yards.
McInnes said: "Clearly the best team won. Ipswich were the better team in the first half and we were fortunate to only be 1-0 down.
"But we kept their better players quiet in the second half, got the ball forward quicker and the game was more evenly poised.
"It was a case of whoever scored the second goal. When Ipswich got it, it was always going to be difficult for us. One point from six games is poor form from our point of view and we need to generate confidence and belief."
