Webster hails City’s character

A fighting spirit helped City get back to winning ways in a thrilling 3-2 encounter with Ipswich Town.

Adam Webster faced his former employers in the midweek fixture at Portman Road, where City struck three times in nine second-half minutes.

The defender was overjoyed with the result, noting City’s character after twice fighting back from losing positions, courtesy of an own goal followed by strikes from Jamie Paterson and Famara Diédhiou.

“Its brilliant to get the three points,” Webster told BCTV.

“The boys showed massive character in the second half. Obviously getting level, going down again, then scoring from kick-off was brilliant and we showed great fight to go 3-2 up. We defended well so we’re really happy.

“You’ve always got to believe because if you don’t you won’t get the result. We’ve had a tough time of late but we had to stop the rot and thankfully we did that tonight.”

The result secured City’s first win after a run of four defeats, with preparations quickly turning to a home clash with Millwall on Sunday (December 2nd, 1.30pm KO).

“Obviously its another tough game,” Webster continued. “Any Millwall side you play against is always going to be physically tough so it's all about recovery and getting right for that.”
