Moussa Dembele’s strike saw the Blues head into stoppage time a goal down at Portman Road, in what was a largely forgettable contest, before David McGoldrick and Freddie Sears combined to tee up Knudsen to fire home off the bar.

The Dane has been one of Ipswich’s most consistent players in recent weeks and said recently that he felt his first goal was coming, and now he has found the net he’s hopeful of doing so more regularly.

“It was nice to get a goal, I will always keep going and try to do my best when I go in the box, and I like to get the goal and make the fans a little bit happier,” he said.

“It’s important because we didn’t want to lose so I’m happy with that, although we should have done better.

“It was brilliant, I’ve had some chances recently and I knew it would come, so it’s nice that it has now, but hopefully I will get more in the last three games.”
