“I thought we were excellent,” the boss told the club's official website.

“The one thing I will say is that we’re going to have to try and be a bit patient. We all want to try and go forward quickly but Ipswich changed against us and went with five across midfield and one up front. That is the respect they showed us.

“It was important that we were patient and when the chances came, we took them. In the end it was a comfortable victory for us and easily our best performance of the season.

“We’ve got a lot of young lads in the team still learning their trade and so you will get up and down performances, but tonight was a good performance.

“We could have been two up before we scored, but at least we were there creating chances and we’re pleased with the performance.”

Great win tonight! Well done @cakpom and Brucey on your goals. Happy to score as well! ⚽️
