It was a good day for Ipswich Town on Saturday afternoon, as they beat Lincoln City 1-0 at Sincil Bank.
Macauley Bonne’s strike – his fifth goal in six league games for the Tractor Boys since joining on loan from QPR – was enough to secure all three points for Ipswich.

That allowed Ipswich to claim their first win in any competition this season, and lifts them to 19th in the third-tier standings, with six points from seven league games.
Perhaps not surprisingly, many Ipswich fans appeared delighted with their side’s breakthrough over the weekend, as they took to Twitter to give their thoughts on the game, and one player who came in for plenty of praise, was Janoi Donacien.
Operating in the right-back position, Donacien delivered a solid performance to help keep Lincoln at bay, impressing many as he looks to finally nail down a spot in the Tractor Boys starting lineup.
Here, we take a look at what some of those Ipswich fans had to say about the 27-year-old’s latest performance.
Very pleased for Donacien after the unnecessary way he’s been treated at the club the past few years. If he continues to play like he did yesterday, KVY is going to find it difficult to get back into the 11. #itfc

Can we just take a minute to appreciate how much Janoi Donacien has improved over the summer. Really solid defensively. Not a bombing full back but gives you that protection and can get things moving. Huge change from him. 👏👏 #itfc

Back from a great day out. Much more solid. Donacien hung back which helped stopped the counters. Carroll brought a composedness to the midfield. Had a feeling early doors today was the day. So so pleased for Cook after the few weeks he’s had recently. #itfc

KVY has got some work to do to get back that RB spot! Donacien deserves to keep it #itfc

I rate Donacien, never gonna do anything flashy but he’s a good solid defender at this level #itfc

Big up Donacien. Treated badly by Lambert. Just gets his head down and does his work. Good lad. #ITFC

Really pleased Donacien had a good game too. Always thought he should be given a chance #itfc
