Matchwinner Tommy Smith delighted with the resilience of the squad as Town come from behind to beat the Owls

  • Town notch first Championship win of the season
  • Sears and Smith on target 
  • Blues face Burnley on Tuesday 

Tommy Smith praised the character of the Town squad, after the Blues came from behind to beat Sheffield Wednesday at Portman Road.

The New Zealand international headed home the winning goal in the second-half, after the excellent Freddie Sears had cancelled out Ross Wallace’s opener for the Owls.

“We showed a lot of character to come from behind, but that’s what this side is all about,” Tommy told Ipswich Player HD.

“We knew it would be a tough game and it was just that, but we showed a lot of resilience to keep going and I think in the end the win was deserved.

“I’m pleased to open my account for the season and it was just a case of being in the right place at the right time.

“I saw Ryan [Fraser] surge into the box and I know he can deliver a good cross so I just made sure I headed for the six yard box.

“Thankfully the ball has fallen to me and I’ve reacted by sticking it in the net. It was a great feeling to score but most importantly, that’s a big win for us today.”
