Blackpool caretaker manager David Dunn says Ipswich Town ‘are a better team than people think’.

Speaking after his side's last-gasp 2-1 win against the Blues at Bloomfield Road yesterday, he said: "It is always great to get a late goal, particularly at home in front of the fans.

"We managed it on Tuesday night (2-1 home win against Bolton) and we have done it again. Hopefully we are making a habit out of it.

"It shows the togetherness that we have as a team at the minute. It was hard in the last 10 or 15 minutes and the lads were holding on after a tough game in midweek.
