Ipswich Town beat Sheffield Wednesday 6-0 on what will prove to be a memorable day at Portman Road. Stuart Watson hands out his player grades.


Vaclav Hladky

Produced a full-length dive to his right to turn Ian Poveda's long-range strike around the post at 1-0 and confidently claimed some aerial balls at various stages. The Czech keeper, as always, helped the Blues bait the press and build from the back. 7


Axel Tuanzebe

Having done well over three successive starts at right-back, Tuanzebe, who is still building up his robustness levels, was rested at Cardiff. Restored to the starting XI at the expense of Harry Clarke, he picked up where he left off in this game. Dealt with the pace of Djeidi Gassma well and looked after the ball. 7


Luke Woolfenden

A typically fuss-free display from Town's laid-back centre-half. Didn't have to get into too many battles. Treated the ball with care when he got it. Can see he's growing as a leader. 7

Cameron Burgess

Attacked every decent corner that went into the Wednesday box. Got his rewards when the ball fell for him to ram home Town's second goal. That makes him, remarkably, Town's 23rd different goalscorer this season. Big sliding challenge on Ike Ugbo in the box drew roar from the crowd in a second half and typified Blues' desire to keep a clean sheet. Heads away on international duty with Australia with a spring in his step. 8


Leif Davis

Six goals and Davis didn't set up a single one of them! Town's left-back got up and down all game, like he always does, and did get several crosses into the box. He also tested the keeper with an angled drive. The most impressive part of this performance, however, was his defensive work. Did really well to snuff out several counter opportunities. 8


Sam Morsy

Having looked a little leggy at Cardiff, Town's skipper was back to his all-action best. He won the ball back so many times thanks to a combination of tenacity and strength, turning defence into attack. No-one on the field had more touches. The true heartbeat of this side. 9

Massimo Luongo

Like his midfield team-mate, Luongo got stuck in and then played forwards. No-one made more passes into the final third (10) than him. As the chant (PG version) goes, 'He's here, he's there, he's everywhere, it's Massimo...' 9


Wes Burns

Winger's fine form continued as he set up Hutchinson's opener, ruffled Marvin Johnson's feathers and then forced the corner from which Town scored their second. That, sadly, proved his last action of the game. Time will tell if he can return to action before the season's end after suffering a significant hamstring injury. 8


Omari Hutchinson

Chelsea loanee, having replaced the injured Conor Chaplin in the No.10 role, was simply electric. Every time he got the ball he had fans off their feet with his direct play and trickery. Lovely reverse finish broke the deadlock, clinical drilled effort made it 4-0, driving run led to the fifth and selfless pass set up the sixth. This kid is going places! 10

Nathan Broadhead

Looked in the mood from the off. Linked up well with Hutchinson, showing some deft footwork and vision. Good movement and technique to score the third, while forward pass set-up the fourth. 8


Kieffer Moore

Big striker really put himself about in the first half, often charging back to pick the pocket of an unsuspecting Owls man from behind. Thumping header cannoned off the underside of the bar ahead of Burgess' goal, while strong centre-forward's play led to the third. Defended set-pieces strongly too. 8

Kayden Jackson (for Burns, 38)

How lucky are Town to have a character like Kayden? No matter how long he finds himself out of the picture, the winger is always ready and fully motivated when called upon. Produced a sublime sweeping cross for Broadhead's goal. 8


Jeremy Sarmiento (for Broadhead, 72)

Instantly rode a tackle and drove Town forwards. Well-struck shot led to Town's fifth. 8


Ali Al-Hamadi (for Moore, 72)

Iraqi international was a real pest when he came on. Was in the right place at the right time to score two poacher's finishes. Now has four goals from nine sub appearances. 8
