"We were against some good and strong League One players, but I thought we were excellent and created loads of chances"
Paul Cook was pleased with both the result and the performance as Town secured a 2-0 victory over Gillingham in the Papa John's Trophy tonight.
Joe Pigott and Conor Chaplin netted for the Blues, with a total of 14 players involved for the visitors at Priestfield.
The result took Town top of Southern Group A, ahead of the other three teams in the group [West Ham U21s, Colchester United, Gills] on goal difference.
"I was pretty delighted with that performance," Paul told iFollow Ipswich.
"Tonight was an opportunity for those that were involved to show what they could do, in a tough fixture.
"We were against some good and strong League One players, but I thought we were excellent and created loads of chances, particularly in the first half.
"It was really good for Joe Pigott and Conor Chaplin to get goals, and everyone did well.
"It was a good game and a solid night's work, especially after Saturday, when we all left so disappointed.
"Our lads showed good work ethic and their quality shone through this evening. I'd just like to wish the travelling fans a safe trip home as well - their support this evening was brilliant."
