MACCA | A WEIGHT OFF MY SHOULDERS

9 January 2022

"Fair play to the fans that came as they must have been soaked. We were buzzing to have a following like that."

Macauley Bonne said he was delighted with yesterday's performance at Gillingham, both on a personal note and as a collective with the team.

The Town striker ended his goal drought with the Blues' third in a 4-0 win at MEMS Priestfield Stadium - his 12th strike of the campaign.

Macauley was also involved in Town's second after he set up Wes Burns following a lovely spin and driving run.

"We were buzzing in the dressing room because it was a really good team performance," he told iFollow Ipswich.

"I'm delighted to end the goal drought as it has been a fair few weeks and that's a weight off my shoulders for sure.

"It was really good work from Matt [Penney] to play the ball across and as it was coming I was thinking 'ooh it's bobbling, is today my day or not?' but thankfully it was fine. I certainly had a sigh of relief.

"The gaffer wanted us to start quickly and we did that. Every goal was a team goal and it was so good to see the things we had been working on come off in the game.

"Our game management was good in the second half as well. We wanted to make sure we came out and were solid so we didn't concede, and then we'd try to get the fourth goal when we could.

"Fair play to the fans that came as they must have been soaked. We were buzzing to have a following like that, and they've been great for us all season."
