‘That’s what was required’ – Ipswich supporters left optimistic after first win in almost two months

Ipswich Town manager Mick McCarthy calmed his critics following a satisfying 3-0 home victory on Tuesday night over relegation-threatened Wigan Athletic, which was their first win in nearly two months.

The Tractor Boys faced a number of changes ahead of the match at Portman Road; midfielder Cole Skuse would be out after suffering a concussion at the weekend.

Tom Lawrence was also absent but Jonny Williams was welcomed on the bench and Emyr Huws started the game.

David McGoldrick got the hosts ahead in the 22nd minute as we was able to calmly slot home past Wigan goalkeeper Matt Gilks.

Their lead was then doubled moments later as the 29 year-old teed up his attacking team-mate Freddie Sears and he was able to finish the ball into the corner.

The two paired up again in the closing stages of the game as Sears picked up his second of the night.

Ipswich Town remain sitting 17th in the Sky Bet Championship table but it does create a nine point gap between themselves and the drop – it was McCarthy’s first set of three points since the 14th February when they won at Aston Villa.

Here is how Ipswich supporters reacted to the result on Twitter….
