It was a match Joe Royle's side had to win and win it they did in style, despite losing key defender Thomas Gaardsoe after just 15 minutes through injury.
If Town can continue in this style in their next six matches, then there is still a chance they can sneak a way into the top six.

They have now gone nine games unbeaten and this was their second consecutive away win following their success at Sheffield Wednesday.
Tommy Miller came in to do a sterling job for the missing Matt Holland while young Matt Richards was impressive on the left and Dutchman Martijn Reuser came on as substitute to look dangerous.
Pablo Counago showed a host of neat touches in midfield, but missed two comfortable first half chances before striking the all-important second goal.
Miller had equalised Paul Smith's 28th minute opener in the 33rd minute with Counago on the scene as the ball entered the net.
After Counago's goal Ipswich's neat passing play kept them in control and a fine low shot by Marcus Bent – his second goal in two games – 12 minutes from the end, confirmed the most welcome three points.
