New Ipswich Town striker Kieffer Moore says he can't wait to get on the end of some more Leif Davis crosses.

The 6ft 5in front man joined the Blues on transfer deadline day from Premier League club AFC Bournemouth.

After just one training session with his new teammates, he stepped off the bench at half-time at Preston on Saturday and helped turn the game around.

First, he leapt highest at the far post to power home a header from a Davis cross. Then, he reacted quickest in the box to stab home.

Kieran McKenna's men ultimately fell short in their comeback attempts, losing 3-2, but Moore's impressive second debut for the club was a major positive.

"That's the type of character I am," he told Town TV. "I keep going right to the end. I'll give everything once I put a shirt on. I'm very fortunate and grateful to be be given this opportunity to show what I can do.

"A big part of my game is bringing others into play and getting in dangerous positions to score goals. I think we showed how we can use that in glimpses. Hopefully it's a good sign of things to come."

On left-back Davis, who now has 11 assists this season, Moore enthused: "I have watched a lot of his clips and spoke to him beforehand. Every time Leif gets the ball my eyes light up because I know what he wants to do and he knows what I want to do. We have that connection."

Fellow new striker Ali Al-Hamidi, the £1m+ recruit from AFC Wimbledon, also came on on the second half to make his debut. The 21-year-old Iraqi international also looked lively.

"He's a great lad and he's got a bright career ahead of him," said Moore. "I would like to do my bit to help him.

"It's all about working together. If we can get a little partnership going that would be nice to see."

Moore is back at Ipswich for a second spell, his initial year at the club back in 2017 having been an underwhelming one before his career took off at the likes of Barnsley, Wigan and Cardiff.

Already a firm favourite among Blues fans, he was serenaded by more than 3,500 supporters in the away end at Deepdale.

"I loved it when they were chanting my name," said the 31-year-old. "I'm really looking forward now to playing at Portman Road (against West Brom on Saturday) and putting on another good display that will hopefully have a better outcome.

"One training session under my belt wasn't ideal circumstances coming into this game so I'm looking forward to a week to work with the lads now."
