TYREEQ ON IMPS SUCCESS

9 March 2022

"From the moment you walk out of the tunnel and you see the fans getting behind you, it gives you that extra motivation to give them the three points"

Tyreeq Bakinson says he was happy that Town could repay the supporters with three points against Lincoln City at Portman Road on Tuesday evening. 

Just under 25,000 fans watched on from the stands as first-half goals from Wes Burns and Kayden Jackson secured a 2-0 victory over the Imps in what was the delayed final #PackOutPR fixture.

The win saw the Blues move to within three points of the play-off places, with Plymouth currently occupying sixth spot in League One.

"It was brilliant to win at home," he told iFollow Ipswich. "The fans were tremendous so I’m just happy that we could pay them back with a win and three points. 

"From the moment you walk out of the tunnel and you see the fans getting behind you, it gives you that extra motivation to give them the three points.

"I thought we started really well. We were on the front foot and obviously got the goals. To go in at half-time 2-0 up is almost a best case scenario." 

Tyreeq returned to the starting XI for Town's defeat of the Imps, lining up alongside Sam Morsy in the middle of the park until the Blues' captain was withdrawn on 77 minutes.

Reflecting on playing with Sam, he added: "It’s always good playing with him, he’s a very experienced player. I’ve played against him before so I know what it’s like to play against him - it’s definitely better playing with him!

"There’s lots for me to learn from him. It’s always a tough battle in the midfield in every game. We had to win the second balls and win the fight to earn the right to play." 

The full interview with Tyreeq is available to watch on iFollow Ipswich.
