Huws: A Performance to Emulate in Remaining Games
Tuesday, 18th Apr 2017 12:02
Blues midfielder Emyr Huws says he and his team-mates will try to emulate their performance during yesterday’s 3-1 home victory over Newcastle United during the remaining three games of the season. The 23-year-old Wales international lashed home Town’s third goal in injury time to confirm the win.
“Everyone’s buzzing in big occasions, and it was a great atmosphere today, credit to the fans. We all enjoyed it and I hope they did as well,” the on-loan Cardiff man said.
“That win had been coming, I think. Credit to the gaffer, his game plan was bang on, we pressed them high and hit them on the counter-attack.
“The fans were really good, the support was immense, and that’s what we need. We’re going to try and emulate that performance in the remainder of the season.
The Blues travel to table-propping, already-relegated Rotherham on Saturday before Sheffield Wednesday visit for Portman Road’s final home game of the season, prior to a last-day trip to Nottingham Forest.
He added: “We deserved what we got. The performances have been there but we just haven’t been clinical enough.
“Didzy and Searsy put the graft in and hound defenders, they help us a lot by putting teams under pressure and they’ve both been clinical today and recently.
“It was nice to get a goal. It was a great ball from Pits and luckily, I put it in, I was really happy with that.
“We’ve played against the big clubs and been the better team without putting the ball in the net when we should have.”
In terms of his future, with his loan up at the end of the season and his Bluebirds contract having two further years to run, he said: “I’m not sure what’s going to happen at the minute, but I’d like to stay at Ipswich.
“We’ve just been focusing on getting results and points, and that’s what we’ll continue to do until the end of the season before we go from there.”
“I’ve been really enjoying my time here, the boys are top class. The staff and everyone else at the club are really welcoming and I’ve been really enjoying playing in this team, there’s real quality.”
Manager Mick McCarthy has said he wants to keep the former Manchester City youngster at Portman Road.

Step Back, Deep Breath and Honesty - Won't Happen! by Balders
The 2016/17 season has been a very disappointing one, never hitting the heights we, as fans, wanted or expected it to.
Kundai Benyu – The Golden Shot? by Haarlem_Blue
Having now returned to the UK from the land of the clog, I thought the Easter break would be a good opportunity to head off to Aldershot, around 15-20 miles from where I now live, to see how Kundai Benyu is progressing.
Mick's Confusion by SpiritOfJohn
Most Town fans who have seen the EFL Team of the Year will be scratching their heads wondering how the brilliant Bart was overlooked, but spare a thought for Mick McCarthy who probably had someone else in mind for the top honour.
Win Some, Lose Some by TimS
So, when is this season going to end? It seems that it is just going on, a slow drip to the start of May when we all head off for a welcomed football-free summer not quite sure what is going to happen at Portman Road.
Attendances? We've Never Had it So Good by CherryHintonBlue
There’ll be a lot of pointing towards the number of spectators against Wigan being under 15,000, and therefore the lowest home league crowd since 1999, but we need to remember that consistent attendances of the levels we see nowadays are far from typical in the club’s history. Since 1960, there have been nearly 300 home league matches with attendances lower than 15,000.
