DEMOLITION Dan is looking for Ipswich to take on their great derby day performance to the Wolves lair on Saturday.

Danny Haynes carried on his top form against old rivals Norwich with a goal, and forced an own goal once again, to hand the Blues a morale-boosting win.

Town had to come from behind to secure the victory after Ched Evans accepted a gift goal after just four minutes.

The Blues' remain outside the top six and Haynes believes Wolves at Molineux on Saturday is a proverbial six-pointer.

Haynes said: “We have to crack on now against Wolves next week. It is a really tight league. Wolves have that game in hand so it is important that we get a result at their place. The way we played today I don't see why we can't go there and get a result.

“We need to hold it together. We can't afford top mess up now. We need to stick together and perform.”

Haynes was keen to play down his derby day record, which is officially three goals in five senior appearances, and he always seems to have an influence.

Although Haynes failed to score in the 2-2 draw at Carrow Road last November, he hit a double in 14 minutes last year in the 3-1 win after going on as a sub.

He was originally credited with the winner in February 2006, although it is officially recognised as an own goal by Gary Doherty.

Either way Haynes is a royal pain in the backside for City, he scored ten goals at youth and reserve level against them to, after they rejected him following a trial game upon his release by Charlton.

He said: “It is always good to play in a local derby and get a result and I'm glad we did that.

“I missed quite a few sitters but we played well and got the result we wanted.”

Haynes paid tribute to striker Pablo Counago who helped create both Town goals, who returned after a three-match ban.

He said: “Pablo was phenomenal, outstanding, and he set me up for my goal.

“It was great to see him back because he is a great member of our squad.”

Haynes admitted the equaliser which was turned into his own net by Alex Pearce was a ball into that he hoped would get to Shefki Kuqi.

He said: “The first goal was a cross and I was hoping someone would get there. I didn't care if it comes off a defender or Shefki.”
