"The gaffer gave me some 'stick' and told me not to wear them in games"

Alan Judge was delighted to be able to throw his boots at Paul Lambert in his two goal display that helped Blues to victory over Burton.

The Republic of Ireland international grabbed a brace and set up Kayden Jackson’s second goal in the 4-1 win over the Brewers, then explained his goal celebration that saw him launch a boot 20 yards in the Town boss' direction.

“When my new boots came out a few weeks back, the gaffer gave me some 'stick' and told me not to wear them in games,” Alan told iFollow Ipswich.

“So when I scored, I threw one of the boots in his direction. It was all good banter.

“I had a word with him when I came off [substituted] as well. I wanted a hat-trick! We had a laugh about it.

“I know I can score goals and I was delighted to get a couple but today was all about getting the win.

“We could crumpled having gone a goal down but I think that is what pleased the gaffer the most, the way we responded and we played some good stuff as well.

“Now we have to build on it and take it into next week’s game against Oxford.”
