Roy Keane didn’t see the 1-1 draw with Scunthorpe as a bad point.

Striker David Healy netted his first for Ipswich since joining on loan from Sunderland at the start of this month, but the Blues boss knew he would soon poach a goal. He told the club site: ‘It was a real poacher’s goal from David and he is capable of that. All good goalscorers score a majority of their goals around the six yard box.

‘He’s been disappointed not to have started more games but he has looked sharp in training and I felt that one of our subs would make an impact and David did.’

I agree with Roy there – Healy looked a lot fitter than he did against QPR and Middlesbrough and I hope this is the first of many goals for the Blues between now and the end of the season, and who knows, maybe longer.

Moving on, and Keano also was pleased with how his players responded to going a goal behind with just 20 minutes left on the clock, and says he will take any luck which comes their way: ‘There are a lot of positives to take out of the game. When we went a goal down it was always going to be tough to get back in the game but the players deserve a lot of credit for doing that.

‘We may have a got a bit of luck with the way the ball rolled for us leading up to the goal but we’ll take it and seven points from the four successive away games is a decent return.’

Ipswich’s next match is at home to Bristol City this Saturday.
