Striker delighted to contribute to 'deserved' win at former club Wigan as Blues continue winning run

Conor Sammon was delighted with the overall performance of his Town team-mates, as Blues claimed a third straight win with a 2-0 victory over Wigan.

The former Latics striker came back to haunt his old side, scoring the second goal of the game after Luke Hyam had opened the scoring in the first-half for Mick McCarthy’s men.

“We’ve worked extremely hard today, from the first minute right until the very end,” Conor told the Club website.

“Wigan are a very good side, as they showed last season, but I thought we proved the better team today and deserved the win tonight.

“Obviously it was a bit nervy towards the end after they pulled a goal back, but we did well to hold out and take the three points.

“It was great to get my first Ipswich goal and extra special to share it with the travelling fans. It’s such a long trip when it could be easy to stay home and watch it on the TV, so all the lads wanted to thank the supporters and I think that was clear to see with the celebrations at the end.

“The gaffer spoke about different scenarios in the week and myself and Luke [Hyam] have both come into the team and scored tonight. I think that just shows the strength of depth we have in the squad and how everyone is working together.”
