BOSS | A BIG RESULT

22 January 2022

"We have spoken about how we need to react when things don't go our way. Today we did that well."

Kieran McKenna was pleased with the character shown by his players in today's 2-1 victory over Accrington Stanley at Portman Road.

Town came from behind to beat Stanley, with Wes Burns and Conor Chaplin on target for the hosts.

Burns' strike came eight minutes after Ethan Hamilton had fired Accrington in front, before Chaplin completed the comeback with a fine strike in the 65th minute.

"It's a big win against a difficult team," Kieran told iFollow Ipswich.

"The game went the way we thought it probably would. Accrington did things well and made it tough, but we showed good character to come back having gone behind.

"It was a slow start but then there was quality to our play and quality to our goals. We were good value for the good goals.

"We have spoken about how we need to react when things don't go our way. Today we did that well. It was important that we responded quickly and showed character and quality. We got the goal and then got a fair bit of control in the game.

"It's a win that at times was very good, and at times scrappy, but we did well to see it out.

"We can go to AFC Wimbledon on Tuesday full of confidence. We're looking forward to it and it's another chance for us to learn more about ourselves. We need to rest and then prepare well."

The full interview with Kieran is available on iFollow Ipswich.
