"It's a monkey off the back, I am in charge of this team, I am the one who took us down, so I want to finish the season on a high. To get to 21 points is a relief, I am happy about the win as I am the clean sheet. For us to get over the line, I am happy.""We didn't have as much quality as the last few games so that just shows what football is about. I am really proud of how they kept a clean sheet and got over the finish line."
Warne overjoyed with long awaited win
“I’m obviously pleased it was a victory. It’s nice to have a first penalty of the season which almost got a Mexican wave in the New York! Then to miss it was a massive blow. It affected the lads massively in the first half. They weren’t as energetic or as dynamic as I wanted. I told them at half time and I thought, second half, they were a lot better."
“We created good chances and I’m pleased to get a clean sheet and a win. It means a lot to a lot of people, including myself. I understand how the fans want to play football here. With the short corner, we wanted to try something different because we haven’t scored many off corners and they had more of a physical presence than we did."
“We kept the ball which is good play. We went back to the half-way line and then back in where we scored, which is quite ironic!”
Tom Adeyemi, who scored the winner came in for praise from the gaffer as he hopes to keep him at New York for next season..
“Him and Frecks are the same, we’ve missed both of them on occasions. He’s had a big impact and what I did notice today was what we are missing. I’m pleased for Tom because he’s always trying to get goal-scoring opportunities and I thought he was going to get one in the first half. It was a great strike and with him being a Norwich fan, scoring against Ipswich will mean even more."
“I spoke to the lads after the game and told them I was happy with the result. I think we’ve been better in previous games and not picked up any points. It shows just how tough football is at this level."
“I said a few harsh words at half time and some after the game. You’ve got to have a little bit more belief in yourself. If they’re lucky enough to be kept here, they can expect a tough pre-season and to be the fittest side in the league next year."
“I’m over the moon today because we kept a clean sheet. The lads have performed really well before and not got the points they deserved.”
