Chambers pleased to score the winning goal for the Blues and avoid the fury of his boss as Town take all three points

Luke Chambers was delighted to notch the winning goal against QPR yesterday- not least to avoid an ear bashing from his manager!

The skipper rose at the back-post to head home an injury time winner, after Jonathan Douglas had earlier cancelled out Junior Hoilett’s opener for the R’s.

Speaking post-match, the defender felt he hadn’t had a great game personally but was delighted with the character shown by his teammates.

“I think personally I’ve had a poor game today. I lost my man for their goal and some of my touches were way off it,” Chambo told Ipswich Player HD.  

“But I’ve managed to pop up with the winner for us today so I’m absolutely delighted and it’s a good win for us.

“The gaffer told me that it was a good job I scored the winner after costing us a goal, so I’m glad I did and didn’t feel his anger afterwards!

“It shows the character of all the boys and what this Club is all about, to never give up and come back and win the game.

“All the lads have done well and it keeps us in the top six. We hadn’t won at home for a while and it’s nice to give our fans something to cheer at Portman Road.

“I said to the boys in training last week and in the pre-match huddle that it was important we made Portman Road a fortress again and hopefully we can build on this result now.”
