Chaplin in Team of Midweek
Wednesday, 20th Oct 2021 15:40

Blues forward Conor Chaplin has been named in the League One Team of Midweek following his goal and assist in last night’s 4-0 hammering of his old club Portsmouth at Fratton Park.

Chaplin was given a warm ovation by his old fans as well as the travelling Blues when he was substituted late on in the game with the Fratton Park faithful hailing him as one of their own.

“That was special," the 24-year-old told iFollow Ipswich afterwards. “I love coming back and playing here, it’s such a good stadium.

“It was a really good night and it was really pleasing for the lads. Hopefully we can kick on and take that on to Saturday.

“Our fans were unbelievable, travelling in some numbers for a Tuesday night. We just thank them and hopefully we can give them a good result on Saturday. 

“I love these Portsmouth fans. They treated me really well when I was here and have treated me just as well since I left. That was a touch of class from them and our fans were unbelievable for the whole night. That’s testament to both sets of fans.”

Regarding his goal, which came via one of two Janoi Donacien assists, he added: "JD has done brilliantly. We’re getting a really good relationship with each other in terms of passing lanes and crossing.

"There was a little bit of eye contact so as soon as he’s gone to put the ball in the box, I’ve darted in front of my man and got a solid contact on the ball which was really good to see.”

Chaplin, who joined Town from Barnsley in the summer, has scored four times in his last six games in all competitions.

Well deserved

Starting to find his feet after a slow start. Surprised Donasien not included in the team. Perhaps Mick Mills selected it.

Good argument for Donacien (clean sheet and two assists) getting in that line-up at right-back ahead of Hamilton (left back who did score + conceded two goals)

Gah, right wing-back, not left back, sorry :( Point still stands I hope :D

Proving to be the best permanent summer signing by far. Love this guy, should be the first name on the team sheet along wit McCauley.

Chaplins infectious and it’s so obvious why he’s a crowd pleaser. Great energy and has a knack of getting in the right places at the right time.

Good performance from Chaplin. Find myself saying that about more and more of our players of late, I really believe we're turning a corner. Really good to see proper football fans on both sides last night, restores some faith after footage of embarrassing England "fans" at the Euros.

Chaplin deserves this as he has played well.

Surprised that Donacien has not made the team. Was not impressed by him when he first arrived but has he proved me wrong this season

Well done to Chaplin. Donacien should def have been in team of the week

grinch added 19:45 - Oct 20
Donacien been best player of the season so far

Linkboy13 added 20:03 - Oct 20
grinch good shout but i think you will find Bonne is the favourite so far and im not a rocket scientist.

Well done Connor, but I’m amazed JD isn’t in that team of the week as well, he should be.

I'm also surprised Donacien not in there, headed 2 goals & has been outstanding. I thought he & Toto would be down the road when PC had his purge, very pleased they weren't included. KVY can't get a look in at the moment

agree Saxonblue74, in the main these players are starting to show their individual capabilities, I can see a very good team emerging .I have been underwhelmed with PC, BUT i am starting to ''warm'' to him ,and feel that we could be about to see the clubs fortunes improve. I hope the next couple of games dont shatter that feeling . COYB
