Saturday’s 1-0 home defeat against strugglers Burton Albion saw automatic promotion pacesetters Brighton & Hove Albion and Newcastle United extend their lead at the top of the table to nine and ten points respectively.
But the 23-year-old was quick to refute claims from rival clubs that Town were starting to feel the heat as the promotion race hots up, merely putting the weekend result down as one of those things.
“It was very disappointing and a sucker punch we didn’t deserve,” remarked Danny Ward ahead of Wednesday night’s clash against Norwich City (7.45pm kick-off).
“But we don’t take too much notice of anyone above or below us, we just carrying on doing what we need to do.

Town face Norwich at the John Smith’s Stadium tomorrow evening looking to recapture some of the scintillating football produced in the corresponding fixture at Carrow Road back in December.
In front of the Sky TV cameras on a Friday night, Town produced an attacking first half of football which blew the Canaries away to eventually seal a 2-1 victory for the side.
It was a result that many outside the football club felt sent out a statement of intent to the rest of the league – something Ward agrees with.
“We felt that maybe a few people outside of the club took a bit of notice of us,” he said.
“We perhaps made a bit of a statement but to us it was just another good away performance against a quality team.”
“Hopefully we can produce a similar result against them at the John Smith’s Stadium,” he added.
