"I'm pleased we stuck at it and got our reward in the second half"
Paul Lambert said he was pleased that Town stuck to their game plan and remained composed in today's 2-0 win over Rochdale at Portman Road.
Blues had to remain patient this afternoon as the deadlock was broken in the 53rd minute by Teddy Bishop.
Gwion Edwards made sure of the three points approaching the hour mark, as Town have now begun the season with three wins from three in the League.
"We started slowly," the Blues boss said.
"Rochdale had one or two moments themselves in the first half and made it difficult for us. We were a bit sloppy but once we got going we moved the ball quicker and stepped up.
"Defensively we were very solid and the clean sheets are very encouraging. Toto [Nsiala] was outstanding.
"I'm pleased we stuck at it and got our reward in the second half. The first goal was brilliant and Oli [Hawkins] deserves a lot of credit for how he held the ball up and laid it off for Bish."
