Town boss on dramatic victory over Salop

Paul Lambert was pleased that Town remained patient in this afternoon's last-gasp victory over Shrewsbury at Portman Road.

Blues fell behind to a fourth-minute penalty from Oliver Norburn after a foul from Mark McGuinness, but an own goal and Jack Lankester's 96th-minute header saw the hosts complete a second-half comeback.

"It's hard when you go behind early and they sat very deep, particularly in the second half," the Town boss told iFollow Ipswich.

"We had to be patient to break it down. Some things I was happy with, some things I wasn't - but I'm happy that we kept going.

"Like I said it's hard when a team plays deep and tries to get you on the counter - but we played some good stuff just sometimes need to move the ball a little bit quicker.

"The subs made a good impact. Jack came on early and Keanan did well. Nors looked like he's getting back to his old self too.

"I'm very happy with the win. Could we play better? Yeah. But all credit to the guys because they were patient and kept prodding away and got their reward."
