Skipper Luke Chambers thanks Ipswich Town fans for ‘true support’ at Hillsborough
Ipswich Town skipper Luke Chambers has thanked the club’s travelling fans for showing ‘true support’ during Saturday’s 2-1 victory at Sheffield Wednesday.
The Blues were booed off the Portman Road pitch following a 2-2 home draw with rock-bottom Rotherham little more than a week ago, but responded with an excellent away day performance and win against a high-flying Owls side who had previously won 13 of their 20 games at Hillsborough this calendar year.
Chambers, who sealed the three points with an 87th minute header after Tom Lawrence’s breathtaking solo opener had been cancelled out by Gary Hooper’s rebound finish in the first half, said: “That was massive. You saw what it meant to all the boys at the end there with everyone, including the subs, celebrating along with the gaffer.
“We’ve got to stick together at times like this – both the players and the supporters. Our fans today were absolutely fantastic. I thank them again for turning out and showing their true support. They stuck with us throughout, singing players’ names and the gaffer’s name.
“I know it’s been difficult and frustrating at times, and people are entitled to their opinions, but ultimately we all want the best for the football club.”

With home games against Nottingham Forest and QPR coming up after this weekend’s international break, Chambers added: “You saw their fans today are not happy with the way their team played and they weren’t afraid to voice their opinions. That showed in some of their performances – their players were very, very nervous at times and we thrived from that and took belief.
“I felt like we gave one of our best performances of the season, if not the best performance. We dominated at times and created chances. Hopefully this is a turning point.”
