Striker delighted to get off the mark for the season as goals from him and Cresswell help Blues see off Yeovil

Daryl Murphy was delighted to score his first goal of the season as Town saw off Yeovil at Portman Road this evening.

The striker scrambled the ball home shortly after half-time to cancel out Joel Grant’s opener for the Glovers, before Aaron Cresswell won it for the Blues with a lovely right-footed strike into the top corner.

Although the strike wasn’t a classic, Murph certainly wasn’t complaining as he notched his first goal of the campaign following his return to the starting line-up.

“It was a bit of scrappy one but I’ll take any goal!” the former Celtic man told Ipswich Player.

“The goal came as a bit of a relief for us, because we were dominating the game but losing and there’s always that danger that the game can run away from you.

“But we dug in well and it was a good time to score. You could sense the crowd were lifted too, as the atmosphere rose, and we scored again soon after thanks to a great strike from Cressy.  

“It’s nice to get off the mark for the season and hopefully I can add to my tally on Sunday against Wigan and go on a bit of a run.”
