Midfielder delighted with Town display and is confident at creating a cup upset in the Portman Road replay

Darren Ambrose believes Town have shown their qualities, after earning a replay against Premier League side Southampton at St Mary’s.

The former Birmingham man- back at Portman Road for a third spell- netted the opening goal of the game, before Morgan Schneiderlin levelled the scores in the FA Cup third round clash.

The Blues held firm in the second-half and earned a replay against the Saints a week on Wednesday, with Darren confident of getting into the fourth round.

“We have to be confident that we can get through, especially on the basis of today’s performance,” the midfielder told the Club website.

“We’ve shown what we are all about and held firm against a side who are sat fourth in the Premier League and have just beaten Arsenal.

“It’s going to be tough but we feel we can get through to the next round. The backing from the fans today was incredible and they made it feel like a home game.”

The midfielder was also delighted to net his first goal of the season, a header from a Tyrone Mings cross and the celebrations saw him run over to the Town bench.

“I’ve been working with TC in training on my heading and it was great to score today,” Darren added.

“I feel I can get a goal for the team and it’s important we all help out Murphy and Didz [McGoldrick] up front.

“The gaffer has given me a chance today and hopefully I’ve repaid him a little bit. I love it at Ipswich and it was a fantastic feeling to score for this Club again.”
