Keane a relieved man after win

10 Feb 2010 - 15:19:47

Ipswich Town boss Roy Keane will be breathing a huge sigh of relief after his side managed to hold off the challenge of QPR in Tuesday's 2-1 Championship success.

The Tractor Boys were heading in the right direction after first-half goals from David Norris and Daryl Murphy.

But a reply from Jay Simpson set the nerves jangling as the hosts staged a late rally. However, Keane's men dug in to claim a vital three points.

Speaking to reporters, he said: "We should have done better, in terms of killing the game off. But I've got to be pleased, because I'd been saying for months that we'd been playing well and not getting the results.

"Tonight we didn't play particularly well, especially in the second half, when we should have killed off the game. We were 2-0 up at half-time and yet strangely we were disappointed."
