Ipswich 3-2 Peterboro: Daily Mirror match report
Published 21:20 18/03/12 By Dave Allard
Ipswich match-winner Aaron Cresswell says his side are now showing the courage that boss Paul Jewell demands.
“We were ahead twice, but each time they levelled. Not so long ago, we would have lost that game,” said the 22-year-old left-back.
“The gaffer has been instilling into us that we’ve got to have a never-say-die attitude. It’s been happening of late, and this was another example of it.”
The ex-Tranmere defender hit his first goal for Ipswich with a 25-yard rocket five minutes from time to give Jewell’s side a fourth straight home win.
He added: “It took a slight deflection on the way in. But from the moment I struck it, I could see it was going for the top corner.”
The home side took the lead in the 16th minute when midfield man Grant Leadbitter fired home from 14 yards out.
But, in the 34th minute, Posh striker Tyrone Barnett slipped the ball past keeper Alex McCarthy to level.
Ipswich, who were hammered 7-1 by Posh earlier in the season, went ahead again 13 minutes from time when midfielder Daryl Murphy nodded home from close range.
Sub Emile Sinclair poked in another equaliser with seven minutes left, before Cresswell’s cracker settled matters.
Posh striker George Boyd said: “It was very cruel to lose the way we did.”
