The Fulham loanee struck after 19 minutes, converting a Daryl Murphy pass, with a goal which ultimately secured his club three vital points and snapped a three-game losing streak.

It was the 26-year-old’s third goal in 20 appearances this season, for Fulham and Ipswich, but the loanee is keen to make more of an impact.

“I’ve said before that I can bring that to the team, which I should be doing more of really, getting in the box and making as much as I can,” he said.

“It was a good pass from Daryl Murphy and I just had to hit the target. Luckily it went in.

“I’ve really enjoyed being here so far. It’s the perfect place to come and concentrate completely on football which is what I need.

“Every footballer will tell you that you want to enjoy your football as well as playing as many games as you can. Enjoying it is a bonus, and I am so far.”
