Job done for caretaker boss as Town look to the future together

Bryan Klug said it was mission accomplished after watching the Town players receive warm applause after the final game of the season ended in a 2-2 draw with Middlesbrough.

A penalty from Martyn Waghorn looked to have won the game for Blues after Freddie Sears’ early opener had been cancelled out by Stewart Downing but Patrick Bamford rescued a point for Play-Off bound Boro with a header deep into added on time.

“The players were absolutely magnificent,” Town’s caretaker manager told iFollow Ipswich.

“The conditions were difficult with the heat and Middlesbrough are a good side but I couldn’t have asked for anymore from them. They have been like that all the way through.

“It was a very entertaining game and I hope the supporters enjoyed it.

“I said four weeks ago there wasn’t a great feeling around the place for whatever reason and that if we could get everyone back together and show what this Club is about then that would do for me.

“We saw that today and I said to the players after the game, we need to build on this now and take it into the new season.

“People can see today that the effort was there and there was also some quality out there as well.”

Bryan also paid tribute to Shane McLoughlin who marked his Championship debut by winning a penalty that Waghorn converted.

“There isn’t a boy that I have worked with that deserved it more than Shane,” added Bryan

“He is everything you want a young player to be. It has been tough for him but it was wonderful to see him come on and have an effect on the game.”
