Ipswich Town manager Joe Sheehan says he is "pleased with the professional performance" his side showed in Town's 6-0 FA Cup victory over Northampton Town.

Town ran out 6-0 victors in a fantastic performance on November 12 to progress to Round 2 of the FA Cup.

Sheehan said: "I am really pleased with the performance.

"It was a professional performance.

"For Northampton, some of their players, this might be the biggest game they will have been aa part of so we knew they were going to be prepared to give a lot.

"We had to make sure we matched that and we applied ourselves really well and our quality shone through.

"It's a competition we're really fond of.

"We have progressed well in this competition over recent years and hopefully we can get good draws to keep pushing forward in the competition as we have done previously."

Lucy O'Brien had a fantastic performance for Town, scoring a brace and winning the penalty in the closing stages.

Sheehan said: "She's unpredictable.

"She's capable of doing lots of different things in attacking areas and it was probably the best she has played this season.

"She'll take a lot of confidence from it."

Town defender Maria Boswell had a solid game, keeping a clean sheet and getting a fantastic assist for O'Brien's second of the game.

She said: "It was a good team performance and we knew we couldn't underestimate them.

"The performance gives us confidence going into our next weekend.

"We noticed quite early on that they were playing quite a high line which gave us the opportunity to keep flipping it over the top and thankfully my through ball landed in the right place and O'Brien finished it off really well."

Boswell recently made her 50th appearance for the club.

On this milestone she said: "I'm really happy to finally get there.

"It's taken a bit of time with different injuries throughout the years, but over the last few seasons we have had a good few run of games so I am really pleased.

"We've got a young squad and I think it's great that we've got Megan (Wearing), Evie (Williams) Leah (Mitchell) doing so well on the backline.

"I am pleased that I'm there to, in a weird way, be able to be a more experienced figurehead for them."
