"Although it wasn’t the prettiest at times, winning was the most important thing"
Matt Penney says that Wednesday night's 1-0 victory over Wycombe was nothing more than what Town's work rate warranted.
James Norwood's goal late in the first half proved to be the difference as Kieran McKenna marked his first game in charge at the Club with three points in front of over 26,000 supporters at Portman Road.
In what was a battling display, the Blues had to show plenty of grit to grind out a result following an improved second-half performance from the visitors.
Matt, who operated as a left wing-back for the second successive League One outing, says that now is the time for Town to kick on and put a run together.
"It wasn’t pretty at times but I thought we worked our socks off and it’s nothing more than what we deserved," he told the Club website.
"The new manager has come in and it was about setting the standard, so hopefully we keep going with more victories and we can kick on.
"We knew what we were in for so it was about dealing with that. I feel like we did well and got the result we deserved.
"There’s a lot more to come but although it wasn’t the prettiest at times, winning was the most important thing.
"We’ve done some hard work with the gaffer so hopefully we can kick on now and propel our season."
