Stopper comes in at short notice to help the Blues to an away win and keeps a clean sheet in the process

Bartosz Bialkowski spoke of the delight in the Town dressing-room, after the Blues left Bloomfield Road with an impressive 2-0 away win against Blackpool.

The ‘keeper was a late replacement for Dean Gerken- who suffered a groin strain in the pre-match warm up- and put in a solid display on his Town debut to keep a clean sheet and help Mick McCarthy’s side return to winning ways.

“To come away from home and take three points is an amazing achievement and the lads are delighted in the dressing-room,” Bart told the Club website.

“We knew it would be a tough game even though Blackpool are at the bottom of the table, because they have a new manager and that sometimes gives you a lift.

“It was a tough test but I thought the lads held up to it well and we deserved the three points.

“I didn’t know I was playing until very late, as Gerks picked up a groin injury in the warm up. I always make sure I’m prepared though and I was ready to play.

“That was my debut and I’m delighted to keep a clean sheet and help the side take a huge three points.

“It’s unfortunate for Gerks but I joined Ipswich to play games and I was delighted to make my debut. We’ve got two big home games coming up this week and hopefully I’ve given the gaffer something to think about.”
