Skusey is grateful for his former lodger pulling him out of trouble as Town record another late win
Cole Skuse has thanked Brett Pitman for ‘digging him out of a hole’ as the striker scored another late winner; Town’s third in the last four home league matches.
Skusey conceded a second-half penalty when he took down Hal Robson-Kanu in the box, but Brett was on hand to give the Blues all three points just minutes from the end.
“I had Pits living with me for six weeks at the start of the season so he’s repaid that tonight, and instead of paying me some rent he’s gone and dug me out of a hole,” he told Ipswich Player HD after the Blues’ 16th consecutive Tuesday night win at Portman Road.
“I said to the lads and the gaffer after the game that I apologise for the silly tackle. It’s just one of those things and it was a daft one which I didn’t really need to make.
“Brett doesn’t like being called a ‘super sub’ so we’ve been calling him Ole Gunnar Solskjaer for a while!
“I thought all three subs made a difference tonight. Bru livened up the game, Varns [Luke Varney] came on and put himself about, won his headers while holding the ball up well and Pits got his goal.
“We’ve got lads on the comeback trail which will only make us stronger so our depth is there, the quality is there and I think we’ve proven it by getting ourselves back in the mix tonight.”
