We were a different side – Paterson

Jamie Paterson says it was the side’s togetherness which helped turn the tide in their favour against Ipswich Town.

They twice fought from behind thanks to an own goal, a second goal of the season for Paterson and Famara Diédhiou’s winning header to secure the 3-2 victory at Portman Road last night (Wednesday, November 28th).

He echoed Adam Webster’s post-match comments, explaining how City showed character by sticking together in their bid to get back to winning ways.

“We’re over the moon,” said Paterson, who played a supporting role in attack alongside Andreas Weimann.

“We weren’t good enough in the first half - we went 1-0 down against a good side who are scrapping for their lives and it was tough. We came out in the second half after a good chat at half-time and you could see we were a different side.”

“We stick together. We have a great changing room and luck always turns. We have had a tough run of late (four straight defeats) and we deserved it. We’ve not had the luck, our fans have been frustrated but we’re glad to send them home happy because it’s a long journey home.”

And while Paterson was delighted to be on the scoresheet once again he added: “I’m just buzzing to get the win and it was a great feeling after the game.”

City kick-off December with a home clash against Millwall this Sunday (December 2nd, 1.30pm KO).
