“It was nice to be a bit of a hero but everyone played their part"
Adam Przybek said his Town debut couldn’t have gone much better with the ‘keeper making two crucial penalty saves in the shoot-out win over Peterborough to help Blues into the last 16 of the leasing.com Trophy.
The 19-year-old kept out spot-kicks from Siriki Dembele and Frankie Kent to pave the way for Barry Cotter to celebrate his 21st birthday with the winner to give Blues a 6-5 victory on spot-kicks after a 1-1 draw over the 90 minutes.
“Any debut, you just want it to go smoothly but the way it went, with the penalty shoot-out at the end was great. It couldn’t have gone any better,” Adam told iFollow Ipswich.
“It was nice to be a bit of a hero but everyone played their part. We had a really young side so it was great to get the result in the end.
“I spoke to Jimmy [Walker, goalkeeper coach] about it and just before the penalties I had a word with Gilly [Matt Gill, coach] as well and he told me about Dembele and their skipper and it came off.
“I had some saves to make early on in the game which helps with the nerves and then after that it was a normal match. You could see that they wanted to win, they put Eisa and Toney on at the end but the young boys did great to hold on.”
Town are now in tonight’s draw for the third round and Adam added: “It’s anyone’s dream to play at Wembley but one game at a time.”
