The debrief: Ipswich Town (A)

Lee Johnson, goalscorer Jamie Paterson and former Ipswich Town player Adam Webster assess City's 3-2 win over Ipswich Town at Portman Road. 

Here's what they said after the game:

LEE JOHNSON

  • Johnson said the changing room was buzzing and he was relieved to get "that monkey off the back" with a win after four defeats 
  • He said Portman Road was a difficult place to come, with Paul Lambert getting the Tractor Boys going and working their socks off for each other
  • Johnson said City were excellent in the first 10-15 minutes before "the Ipswich shape got the better of us"
  • Lloyd Kelly epitomised what Johnson wanted in the second half with his "attacking intent" and Famara "gave us the physical platform"
  • The focus of the week had been on giving players confidence "so they trust in each other and they know that we trust them"
  • Academy product Joe Morrell acquitted himself well and was "very composed and calm"

JAMIE PATERSON

  • Paterson admitted that City "weren't good enough in the first half" but were "a different side in the second half"
  • He said City have had a "tough run over the last four game" and the feeling was of "relief more than anything"
  • The forward said the fans "had been frustrated and the players were glad to send them on their long journey home happy"
  • Reflecting on his first goal since Bolton Wanderers away in August, Paterson said: "I feel like I'm in and around the goal and can get some more goals in that central position"

ADAM WEBSTER

  • Webster talked about "the massive character" shown by the players to come back from losing positions twice
  • City's half-time team talk was focused on "being positive in the final third"
  • Millwall are next up at Ashton Gate on Sunday which will be "physically tough" and the focus on the next few days would be about recovery
