IPSWICH Town boss Roy Keane was delighted with the way that his team reacted, following the Boxing Day defeat at Crystal Palace, with a biggest win of the season over QPR.

Jon Stead may have claimed two goals, and was the man of the match, but this performance was not just about one man.

Stead netted twice in the second half, after Jon Walters had given Town the lead after just three minutes in a 3-0 victory.

"It was a good reaction from the game on Saturday," insisted Keane.

"I've talked enough in recent weeks. It was time for action rather than words today, and it's not good enough that we haven't had back-to-back wins since last May.
