"As the game went on, we caught them on the break a number of times and didn't really make enough of it which we should have done, until we got the winner.

"I had no worry about my ability or my confidence in the players and they've backed that up today with a really good performance.

"That performance and result today reflects my time at Ipswich. That is more like my team and how I have been."
