Tayo relieved after dramatic draw

Tayo Edun said an opening day defeat would have been tough to take after he proved Town’s saviour with a stoppage-time equaliser against Blackburn at Portman Road.

The second-half substitute, who joined on a season-long loan from Fulham just yesterday, rescued a 2-2 draw for Blues with a curling strike in the final moments – his first goal in professional football.

“That goal felt very good,” the 20-year-old told iFollow Ipswich.

“It was my first professional goal so that adds something to it. Of course the main thing was that we came away with something from the match, though.

“I wanted that for the team. They worked hard for 90 minutes and I think it would have been really tough to take had we not got a point – so there was definitely a sense of relief as well.

“There was still enough time to possibly nick a winner too - we went for it but unfortunately it just didn’t work out.

“I also thought the fans were excellent all afternoon. There was a buzz about the place before the game and they continued right until the final whistle.”
