IPSWICH Town completed a highly satisfying week when they notched a resounding 4-1 victory over bottom of the league Wimbledon at Portman Road today.

Joe Royle's Blues were bottom themselves until Tuesday night's 2-1 eclipse at Walsall that gave them a first league win of the season.

Today they built on that in emphatic style as Darren Bent and Alun Armstrong scored again. Richard Naylor struck to make it two for the campaign and Spanish front man Pablo Counago scored a penalty to get a much deserved opener for the season after so many near misses.

Pat Agyemang was the consolation scorer for the visiting Dons from South East London. It was a sweet victory for Town who had lost here 5-1 to Wimbledon towards the end of last season. They gave a thoroughly workmanlike display with much zest and enterprise in midfield and up front.

This was just the sort of performance they were looking for and now they take it on Tuesday night when they face Notts County at Meadow Lane in the second round of the Carling Cup. This will be followed by a visit to Watford next Saturday.

After a slow start Joe Royle's Blues bandwagon is on the roll again. You can't argue with a 4-1 scoreline. Wimbledon battled hard but Ipswich deserved their success.
