Ipswich Town beat Leeds United 2-1 at Portman Road yesterday.
Ipswich came from behind to be victorious at Portman Road, with Luke Chambers and Brett Pitman both scoring second-half goals to provide them with victory.
The Tractor Boys had been placed on the back foot when Leeds scored in the very first minute of the match, but they showed their fighting spirit to win the three points.
Smith felt the win was fine reward for his team’s performance, and he claimed that they ‘dominated’ the fixture.
Another win under the Portman Road lights. Started on the back foot but dominated the game from 20 mins in. Thoroughly deserved win #ITFC— Tommy Smith (@tommysmith1990) January 12, 2016
Smith’s opinion on the match was almost the entirely opposite view of that which Leeds United boss Steve Evans took.
Evans claimed that Ipswich were fortunate to grab a victory, and that their performance was disjointed.
“I think they were as bad in spells as we were, for 20 minutes we controlled the game and are unfortunate not to be two up,” Evans said to the East Anglian Daily Times.
“They looked disjointed but you know how they play, they’re always going to grind themselves into the game and launch it to Murphy and fight for second balls. It’s how they play.
“In the second half they had a lot of play but I don’t remember too many chances from them, but if you switch off you’re going to get punished.”
Whether Smith had heard these comments before posting his tweet remains unclear.
Other Ipswich players were also in a celebratory mood, after the win secured their spot in the play off spaces.
