Carlos Carvalhal couldn't hide his emotions on the pitch at Portman Road after Sheffield Wednesday secured their place in the Championship play-offs.
It's been a rollercoaster of a season for the Owls with some questioning the head coach and the players throughout the campaign as they attempted to match last season's march to Wembley.
The football hasn't always been pretty but over the past month you couldn't question the team's quality, resilience and bottle as they made it six wins in a row with victory over Ipswich on Saturday.
And after what has been such a difficult campaign in a hugely-competitive division, Carvalhal, looking almost defiant, celebrated ecstatically with fans after the final whistle.
"It's something fantastic." said Carvalhal. "We prepare very well for the games and this is a result of a lot of hard work. Six wins in a row is fantastic - that is something very special.
He added: "We have more points than we had last season and we are dealing with the expectations of our fans."
