Boss delighted with 'complete' performance

Paul Cook said the main people he was pleased for was the Town supporters following a 4-0 victory at former club Portsmouth this evening.

More than 1,250 Blues fans made the 317-mile round trip to Fratton Park, with Town putting on a show for them on the south coast.

Macauley Bonne opened the scoring to give the visitors the lead at half-time, before the Blues took complete control with goals from Conor Chaplin, Sone Aluko and Wes Burns after the break.

"It was a good performance and a performance across the full 90 minutes," the Town boss told iFollow Ipswich.

"We knew we would have to defend at times, because at Fratton Park Portsmouth will always put you under pressure, but we dealt with it.

"The back door tonight was firmly shut. We were outstanding and we have set the standard. We can't dip now.

"The reality is, we're a strong team, but we're learning. We've seen what we're capable of and we showed real intent.

"I'm so pleased for the supporters. They'll go home delighted and they deserve it because their backing was fantastic. They'd have been deflated but they're watching us get better.

"Supporting a football club can be a rollercoaster, and they'll have loved it tonight. I'm so happy for them."
