IPSWICH Town ended their dismal away run where it all started by beating Sheffield Wednesday.
Relieved Blues boss Jim Magilton praised Town fans for their patience after Alan Lee hit the winner to give Ipswich their first win in 11 months.
Magilton said: “It is definitely a monkey off our backs and fantastic for the players. It should really pick up their confidence. I'm so pleased for our fans because they have followed us through our darkest days and it was another good turn-out today.”
Man of the match Alan Quinn scored the opener and set up Lee for the winner with Marcus scoring for Wednesday inbetween.
Magilton said: “The new players settled in well. I signed Alan for his enthusiasm and his character and he did well for us today.

“Norris is a very good player and good players bounce off each other.”
Former Owl Magilton hopes his old club don't go down.
He said: “On a personal note I didn't have a very good time here, but my admiration and respect for the club has never dwindled.
“They just need a break like we got today.
“I would certainly like to think they will stay up and would hate to see them get sucked into a relegation dogfight.”
Wednesday boss Brian Laws admits his side are anxiously looking over their shoulder.
He said: “If we had played like we had in recent weeks we would have been fine, but that never happened.
“We were flat and had a poor start. We gave away a cheap goal and that put us on the back foot.
“We got back in it through Tudgay, who was our only shining light.
“Even though we made changes it did not make a difference.
“We are in trouble at the bottom end, performances like that will not help the situation and we need to improve on the park.
“If we need to make changes in the loan market then that is what we will do.
“Ipswich were always going to win away eventually I just didn't want it to be us, but it was.”
