Martyn Waghorn hopes Ipswich Town’s performance in the entertaining 2-2 draw with Millwall on Monday is far from a one off.
The Portman Road crowd left happy after witnessing an attacking display in which their side pushed for the win from start to finish, as two Waghorn goals ensured the Blues took a point from the Championship’s form team.
It was the performance rather than the result that left a smile on Ipswich fans’ faces, as their side brought an end to a five-game home goal drought which has seen Ipswich struggle on home soil during a series of drab encounters at Portman Road in 2018.
Regardless of who replaces manager Mick McCarthy once he departs this summer, leading scorer Waghorn believes sending the home crowd home happy is something he and his team-mates want to do each and every week.
“It was really entertaining and both sets of fans were really good while the players left it all out on the pitch,” he said.
“That’s what the fans need, a bit of attacking football, a bit of optimism and that was something we were able to give them.
“I don’t think it’s the manager but it’s just us playing on the front foot and the fans getting behind us. There have been times before we’ve done well and not got the goal we wanted or decisions haven’t gone our way, but today we set the tone early doors.
