CHRISTIAN | REALLY PLEASED WITH THAT ONE

26 January 2022

"We're developing in terms of keeping the ball and then waiting for the chance to create an opportunity and utilise our pace and power"

Christian Walton believes Town have come a long way from the start of the season, with last night's victory at AFC Wimbledon a good example of the progress made since the beginning of the campaign.

The Blues secured a 2-0 victory in South West London, with Wes Burns netting a brace in a controlled display at The Cherry Red Records Stadium.

Town have now won four of five games since Kieran McKenna took charge.

"We're really pleased with the result," Christian told iFollow Ipswich.

"Those sort of games are always tough, and earlier in the season we might have drawn it. I think it shows we have come a long way. It was a good clean sheet and three points.

"We were solid and did our jobs. We had a lot of possession and were just waiting to create those good chances with a bit more of a cutting edge. The lads worked really hard and eventually broke them down.

"It came after we had dealt with their period of pressure as well. When you're getting tested, you need to be right at it. You're going to have parts of games where you are up against it, so you want to stand firm and then make the most of it when you get on top in the match.

"Once you get through that you know you have strong attacking players that can get at the opposition with pace. We created more in the second half and I was really pleased for Wes [Burns] to get the two goals.

"We're developing in terms of keeping the ball and then waiting for the chance to create an opportunity and utilise our pace and power. Again we showed that.

"We showed that as the goals came from quick attacks, and we're seeing goals from all over the pitch as well. Everyone is chipping in and we have a lot of depth in the squad.

"It was a good result for us and now we must do everything we can to build on it at the weekend."
