Southampton boss Russell Martin says his side are struggling to deal with losing games.
Saints were handed their third straight Championship defeat on Tuesday against Ipswich after conceding the game's only goal in the first half.
"There wasn't much in it and the lads gave everything," Martin told BBC Radio Solent.
"Both teams were well organised but they [Ipswich] came and got their goal and defended really well after."
Southampton, who have dropped to 11th in the table, have conceded 17 goals in seven matches - the most in the division.
"We keep giving teams a one goal head start at the moment and it makes it so difficult," Martin added.
