DANNY Haynes has placed some apple juice on ice.

The 19-year-old Ipswich Town whizkid today hailed his strike in Saturday's 3-0 demolition of Wolves as his best-ever goal - and then looked ahead to creating more misery for Norwich City on Sunday.

Town's win stretched their home winning run to ten games, which was fitting as it was a ten out of ten performance.

The man who shoots down the Canaries seemingly every time he plays against them is now looking ahead with relish.

He says that he - and the rest of the Town squad - are ready to celebrate their first away Coca-Cola Championship win of the season at Carrow Road.

“There is a really big buzz around the place,” said Haynes.

“We cannot wait to get out there and train and cannot wait for the games to come around.

“We are in the top four now, and this is where we want to stay.

“We believe we can win every game and are the best team in the league.

“I have never known such an overwhelming feel-good factor.”

Haynes scored in stoppage time - the third wonder goal of the game following Alan Lee and Pablo Counago's strikes.

“I don't touch alcohol,” said Haynes, who came on as a substitute in the 81st minute.

“It was my best ever goal and I celebrated with apple juice. It would be great to

be doing the same on Sunday.”

But Haynes revealed a different approach to the match against a bottom-of-the-table Norwich club that he always seems to score again.

“I failed to find the net at Carrow Road last season,” said the player who netted in a home reserve fixture against the Canaries this month. “So I will go into the game treating it the same as any other.”

Haynes is fast becoming manager Jim Magilton's super sub. And the jet propelled Haynes is happy with the role.

“Yes, I would love to start every match, but the gaffer sees me best as a substitute coming on late to try and make the most of some tiring defenders.”

Talking about his goal, Haynes said: “It was the most individual one I have scored.

“I don't score many with my left foot, but I hit this one so powerfully there was nothing the keeper could do.

“When that happens it's the best feeling ever and when you celebrate you get lost in the moment.”

Cue the apple juice.
