Frontman on target in dominant second-half performance from Blues

Kayden Jackson believes there aren't many sides that can handle Town when things click for Paul Lambert's side.

Blues put in a dominant second-half display to overcome Tranmere Rovers with a 4-1 win at Portman Road after the scores were level at half-time.

Kayden smashed the hosts back in front after Luke Garbutt's stunning free-kick was cancelled out by Rovers' Stefan Payne, before Jon Nolan and Kane Vincent-Young rounded off a terrific second 45 minutes from Town.

"You can't really have any complaints when you win 4-1 in front of your own fans and get another important three points to strengthen your position at the top of the table," the 25-year-old frontman, who now has five goals for Blues in the league this term, told iFollow Ipswich.

"Tranmere made it tough for us in the first half and fair play to their front two who made it difficult for our lads at the back. But the gaffer told us at half-time that we had to be patient and then pounce when the gaps opened up and we certainly did that in the second half.

"I'm obviously pleased to get on the score sheet too and I maybe should have had a second but Nolo (Jon Nolan) was on hand to head in the rebound and I'll take that all day long.

"Overall it was a good day at the office and I think it showed that when things click there won't be many teams that can handle us.

"We'll rest up ahead of a long trip to Fleetwood next week because that will be a difficult match and I expect them to be one of the stronger sides this season."
