Attacker Conor Chaplin was delighted to be back on the goal trail after his brace helped Ipswich Town beat Buxton in the FA Cup. 

Chaplin opened the scoring with a driven finish from inside the box, as he connected with a Wes Burns cross, before firing in the third from range in a game the Blues ultimately won 4-0. 

The brace ended a run of 12 games without a goal for Chaplin, who was named man-of-the-match following an excellent performance. 

“It was a good, professional performance, which is what we wanted before the game,” the attacker said of his team’s display. 

“We worked intensely, really well, got the goals and then shut up shop. 

“We had a lot of crosses into the box, which they defended so well, and we were just waiting for one to drop. That’s what it was (for the first goal), a great spot from Wes and a brilliant ball. 

“The first goal in these games is really important. I had a couple headers and snapshots before then so I felt like the chances were coming. I’m just glad that went in the back of the net. 

“The second goal was a nice strike which thankfully went in. It was nice to see that go in.” 

Reflecting on his side’s victory, Kane Vincent-Young said: “We wanted a clean sheet, which comes from the whole team and the work ethic was good,” he said. 

“We matched them physically and it was a really good performance. 

“We knew they would defend deep, so we would have most of the ball, and the plan was to work it from side to side and get crosses into the box.” 

Asked who he wants to see Town draw in the third round, Vincent-Young replied: “Arsenal away, please, I’m begging you. 

“But any Premier League team will be good so we can test ourselves and see what we can do against them.”
