RICHARD Naylor beamed after Ipswich Town's second away Coca-Cola Championship victory of the season and said: “You ain't seen nothing yet.

“We have not hit our best form this season, yet we are level top of the table,” added the Blues defender.

“There is plenty more to come from us, and we are perfectly placed to make a big impact this time round.”

The 27-year-old longest-serving Ipswich player had another strong game at the heart of the defence as Town won 2-1 at Coventry and even had time to have an 'assist' in the winner - an own goal by Matthew Mills three minutes from the end of normal time.

“We had chances to have scored more goals,” added Naylor. “We defended well apart from one lapse when it looked as though we did not all go forward and play their man offside.

“It was a shame and for a while it looked as though we were going to pay a heavy price for that one mistake.

“This win puts us back on course after the home draw with Reading.”

Tommy Miller, Ipswich's ace penalty taker, was taking no credit for Lewis Price's fine penalty save after 19 minutes.

“I never take spot-kicks in training,” said Miller, who gave another purposeful display in midfield.

“I save them for games,” added Miller, who has yet to miss a Town penalty.

He added: “Stern John could not have placed the ball much better and it was a superb stop by Lewis. He made a save in the same spot where I put many of my penalties.

“We deserved our win and we now have two weeks off in which to recharge our batteries.”
