Roy Keane is a relieved man after seeing his side move out of the bottom three.

Saturday’s 3-1 win over Blackpool moved Ipswich up to fifth from bottom, and although Keano was happy to see his side move up the table, he insists it is nothing to celebrate although it will give the players a mental boost.

‘It [the win] takes us out of the bottom three and mentally that’s good but we’ve got a lot of work ahead of us and we need to kick on from here and move up the table as quickly as possible,’ the Town boss told the club site.

But there was reason to celebrate because the players showed that they could find the net, despite recent worries they would never score again!

Roy continued: ‘We could have had five or six goals in the end. We had really good chances but we took three and that’s pleasing. We had some good chances to have tied the game up well before the end.

‘Steady’s goal coming so early was obviously a boost and that’s what we’ve needed over the last few weeks. Blackpool probably had more of the possession but Jack’s goal summed up our performance – a quick break, good movement but he still had a lot to do when he went through and he took it well.’
