Ipswich Town moved back to the top of the Championship with an impressive 3-0 win against Hull City at Portman Road. Alex Jones provides his player ratings for the Blues.

Vaclav Hladky

Largely untroubled in goal, but his distribution was key here. Set up the move for the second goal and played George Hirst into space for the third goal. He's improved massively and become so confident in a back line that takes loads of risks. 8

Brandon Williams

Incredibly brave defending. Put in a huge block to deny Hull from one of their few first-half chances. Maintained it after the break while also contributing in the final third. He shut down everything that the visitors tried to. A massive performance - his best so far this season. 8

Luke Woolfenden

Williams' commanding performance gave him little to do. A few nervy moments playing out from the back, but that's to be expected. Got stuck in, fought with Hull defender Lewie Coyle and commanded the back line well. 8

George Edmundson

An unexpected inclusion in the starting lineup but a massive performance. Aside from one moment where he was spun by Liam Delap, he was a huge presence in the back line. He's bounced back from his poor form earlier in the season and looks more than capable in the first-choice XI. 8

Leif Davis

Absolutely exceptional. Two trademark assists in the first half. His movement up and down the left flank caused Hull huge problems. Wasn't as threatening in the second half, but Town didn't have to work as hard considering their comfortable position. Created more chances (4) than anyone else on the pitch. 9 (Man of the Match)

Sam Morsy

Town missed him massively over the weekend. The metronome in midfield. Completed the most passes (77) of anyone on the pitch, showed his usual aggression and really dug in to protect the defence. 8

Massimo Luongo

Blended in a little bit, but a solid night's work. Didn't give Hull's midfield a second to breathe and stopped them from really troubling the back line. Sprayed some nice passes around too. No reason why Australia won't be moving quickly to call him up for the next internationals - it'd be criminal if he missed out. 8

Wes Burns

Finally off the mark. It's been coming all season, because he's gotten into some fantastic positions. His finishing didn't let him down this time as he fired a fierce shot past Ryan Allsop for the opener. Pressed all game and was a real threat. 9

Conor Chaplin

Could be accused of becoming a bit anonymous in one or two games so far this season, but he was in the middle of everything in the first half. Played a crucial part in the first goal despite not touching the ball, and tucked the second away with a sensational strike. 8

Marcus Harness

Deserved a chance to start in the Championship and he delivered. A pretty easy goal, but he still had to be there to finish it off. Some great movement and really nice touches. He'll surely be in McKenna's plans going forward. 8

George Hirst

Worked incredibly hard and got his reward with the assist for the third goal. Didn't have a great deal to work with but should've done better with his chance early in the second half. Showing himself as a real all-round striker. 8

Sub: Omari Hutchinson (80')

Only had 11 touches given the fact he came on at the very end, but could've won a penalty and did well to carry the ball forward when Town were working to secure the clean sheet. 6
