"Everyone was in it together today and we are making Portman Road a fortress"

Kieran McKenna thought Town were excellent in the first half against Plymouth this afternoon.

Sam Morsy's 37th-minute strike was enough for the Blues to take the spoils against a Pilgrims side, who, before today's game, had won their last six without conceding a goal.

The hosts were dominant in the first 45 minutes, and, although they didn't create as many chances in the second half, were never threatened significantly across the full 90.

"It was a good performance and the first half was excellent," Kieran told iFollow Ipswich.

"We pressed them high up the pitch, moved the ball through them and we had too much for them in the first half.

"The only critcism was that we should have gone in having scored more than one.

"We gave away fewer free-kicks than in previous games and looked solid defensively.

"We're doing better with getting bodies into the box as well, and we just want to keep improving.

"Everyone was in it together today and we are making Portman Road a fortress. I want to thank everyone for their support today and I hope Paul Mariner's family and friends enjoyed the occasion - it was great to honour him in that way and get the win."
