Skipper praises the Blue Army for playing their part as Town move top with win over the Clarets

Luke Chambers has praised the impact of the Blue Army, after Town climbed to the top of the Championship table.

The skipper played his part as second-half goals from Freddie Sears and David McGoldrick saw the Blues defeat Burnley, with the fans singing ‘we are top of the league’ come the final whistle.

“I think everyone who comes to Portman Road wants to get involved- wants to sing; wants to clap; wants to get behind the team and when they do that, the whole crowd does it in unison,” the skipper told Ipswich Player HD.

“When I first came here it was a bit sporadic in terms of getting behind the team but you can’t fault them, I keep saying that. They’ve been fantastic and hopefully we can keep giving them something to shout about.

“It was as much of a squad game as it could have been tonight and the boys that came off the bench, McGoldrick and Pitman, were a weapon for us and, during my time here, I don’t think we’ve had that so it all bodes well for the future.

“It was a solid team performance and although it’s early days, we are top of the league and that’s a good habit to get into. It’s a happy dressing-room at the minute.”
