Ipswich Town striker Tyreece Simpson scored his professional goal to lead loan club Swindon to victory this weekend.

The teenager, on loan at the League Two club for the season, grabbed the only goal of the game as the Robins beat Mansfield Town 1-0 at the County Ground.

The youngster, who made a handful of senior appearances for Ipswich under former boss Paul Lambert, was on the end of a great team move which started with the Swindon goalkeeper and ended with Simpson thumping former Ipswich loanee Jonny Williams' cross into the roof of the net.

"It felt amazing," he said.

"It's been a long time coming but I finally got there and we finally got three points. Being a striker you want to score goals, that's the main goal.

You may also want to watch:

"The gaffer has shown great trust in me and I kept on going, kept getting into positions and kept with it.

"The cross (from Williams) was decent. You see it in training that he has a bit of magic."
