Chris Basham felt Saturday's victory over Ipswich Town was fully deserved.

And the scorer of the game's only goal praised United's patient approach against Mick McCarthy's side.

He remarked: "The main objective was to win the game, however that came about, but we started really and pushed them on to the back foot.

"When the goal doesn't come when you're so much on top you get a bit frustrated and the Gaffer is always warning us about these situations.

"The chat at half-time was one of remaining patient because a goal would come and it would be the winner."

Basham, who operated at right wing-back following Kieron Freeman enforced departure, once again displayed his versatility.

He added: "We had to be patient without getting frustrated. We want to see goals flying in the net, but often one is enough and so it proved to be the case again.

"Ipswich are a very good side who score a lot of goals, both home and away, they've got some excellent strikers and we knew if we kept a clean sheet we would very likely win the game.

"The Gaffer knows he can play me anywhere and he knows I'm always like to pop up at the back stick and thankfully Flecky's cross was inch perfect."
