Simply perfect for Danny
DANNY Haynes talked about his perfect day after scoring twice to win yesterday's Championship derby against Norwich City at Portman Road.“Scoring a goal at any time gives you a great feeling, but when it is against Norwich it is really special,“ said the striker, who has only failed to find the net once in plentiful first team, reserve and youth matches against the Canaries over the last three seasons.

DANNY Haynes talked about his perfect day after scoring twice to win yesterday's Championship derby against Norwich City at Portman Road.
“Scoring a goal at any time gives you a great feeling, but when it is against Norwich it is really special,“ said the striker, who has only failed to find the net once in plentiful first team, reserve and youth matches against the Canaries over the last three seasons.
“And when you can celebrate in front of your own supporters it makes it even better. It was a perfect day.“
Haynes ensured a lifelong place in the admiration of all Ipswich fans with two fine goals, to add to his scrambled effort that won Town three points at Carrow Road last spring.
He has become Ipswich's secret weapon against the Canaries, and he added: “The manager told me to go on and play alongside Alan Lee.

“My target was to score a goal, and now I must work to try and carry this on from here.”
It was Haynes' first Town senior goals of the season, and follows two while on loan at League One Millwall.”
He drew praise from his skipper Jason De Vos, who played much of the game with a bandage round his head and was stitched for 15 minutes above his right eyebrow by the club doctor during the interval.
“Danny does not lack confidence and he was on cloud nine after the game,“ said De Vos.
“He took his goals well and was a real handful.
“When he is in and out of the side he can be a bit up and down sometimes, but there is no better player to have come on.”
And De Vos had words for Matt Richards, who made a mistake for the Norwich goal, and missed a good chance to put Ipswich in front.
De Vos said: “He gets unfairly treated by the fans sometimes. They do not always understand what goes on and it is Matt who does the dirty work and runs his heart out.
“He gives us balance and has great character and determination. Nothing worries him and every team needs players like Matt.”
