Ipswich goal-scorer Jonas Knusden thrilled by his part in exciting derby clash with Norwich City
Another derby goal ensured Jonas Knusden had the biggest smile inside Carrow Road at full-time, even if his header wasn't enough to earn Ipswich a win.
The Danish defender scored Town's goal at Portman Road in the 1-1 draw between the two sides earlier in the season and helped himself to another important goal on Sunday.
The 24-year-old emphatically headed home a Jordan Spence cross from the right in the 63rd minute to give the Blues the lead at Carrow Road – and loved his time in the spotlight.
'It's brilliant, it's an important goal to score in a derby. I think I know my moments when to score my goals!' Knudsen said.
'It was a brilliant ball in and I took the chance, which is great for me and you saw with the fans how important it was for them.

The Denmark international, who had three of his best friends and his girlfriend over for the game, admitted he was impressed by the atmosphere – provided by Carrow Road's biggest crowd of the season, of 27,107.
'It was a great atmosphere, I think it's a nice stadium, a full stadium, which was nice and that is what we are playing for, these types of games,' he continued.
'This is the atmosphere you want to play in front of every time because this is how it has to be. I think our fans were brilliant and I think also the Norwich fans were good, so you have to say it was a good atmosphere, I enjoyed it.'
Despite seeing Jacob Murphy hit back for the Canaries, Knudsen said the Town dressing room was happy with their February work, drawing with Brighton, Leeds and City, and winning at Aston Villa.
'You could see in the first half we were a little bit on the back foot and they were a little bit more aggressive than us,' he reflected. 'But then we came out for the second half and were better.
'At first they had some chances but there will always be chances in a game. Of course at 1-0 up you want to stay at that and get a win but we took a point out of it, away from home in a derby and if you look at the result after it's fair.'
