Dominic Iorfa knows he needs to continue to take his chances if he is to secure a regular spot in the Ipswich Town first team.
The Wolves loanee came into the side on Saturday in the absence of captain Luke Chambers, and made his mark as he scored the Blues’ second goal in their victory over Nottingham Forest.
Iorfa has battled with Jordan Spence for a regular starting spot at right back this season and believes that competition can only be good for the team.
“For successful teams, competition for places is good,” he said.
“The defenders have been doing well so I’ve come in and got on the score sheet. That’s all I can do really. When I get the opportunity I’ve just got to take it as well as I can.”

“I should have more to be honest, it’s something I’ve been trying to do. I’m just thankful I’m now off and running so hopefully I can kick on.”
Next up is a trip to Middlesbrough, with Iorfa insisting he and his team-mates go there in confident mood following back-to-back victories.
“Middlesbrough have got a lot of good players and it should be another tough game, but the lads are confident with the last two results so hopefully we can go there and get a result.”
