Stats would suggest we’re not having all our own way tonight, maybe someone at the game can ping us an update from the match as we all know stats don’t always provide the complete picture.

Looking at how many shots Rochdale have had it’s a bloody good job they don’t know where the goal posts are. 🤭

That’s what you want, a goal when you’re not playing well. Well ideally you want a goal when you are playing well but you know what I mean

It looks like we’re a different team in the second half. I’d love to have been a fly on the wall in the dressing room at half time.

Yep another 1-0 win, Town were far more comfortable in the 2nd half. Norris has not had to make a save the whole game to be fair. Town could of had couple more. Well done on to the next game.

I think that's the main reason why we are top. Most teams we have played have failed to test our keeper. We aren't playing that well but - apart from tonight - our strikers work well together and are scoring.

Putting balls on the line here, but my own personal theory is similar to the cabbage & ribs playing the likes of Stranraer...., (Ok, the product isn't as good, but relative to the story)..... Ipswich Town SHOULD fair better against the so called better teams like Wycombe / Coventry / Blackpool. These teams will be out to actually play Ipswich and try and win. Ok, Rochdale (who?) started well , but teams like Rochdale (who?) are the tricky banana skins and the lads done the job. Especially second half. You earned your dough tonight, Lambo.

A win is a win, especially away from home. Not pretty in the first half, but I'm definitely delighted. Clean sheet 👍

Much better second half, controlled it, deserved win in the end and as has been said Norris didn't have a save to make. Top of the League with 2 in hand on some !!

Oh and the mighty Peterborough lost again, just a blip or something more accurate ? :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

Happy journey home, cheers G&B
