Sierra Leone-born Trevoh Chalobah scored the winner for Ipswich Town in their 3-2 away victory against Swansea at the Liberty Stadium on Saturday.
As a result, they secured a first win of the season after Trevoh Chalobah’s late goal to eased the pressure on under-fire boss Paul Hurst.
The Ipswich victory comes at their 12th attempt, despite Swansea had made the perfect start when Connor Roberts’ cross was deflected in on eight minutes by Janoi Donacien.
Ipswich scored twice in four first-half minutes with goals from Gwion Edwards in the 27th and Mike van der Hoorn’s own goal in the 31st respectively.
Swansea and the former Ipswich loanee Bersant Celina levelled the scores before Chelsea academy graduate Chalobah snuck an effort in at the far post to lift his side off the bottom.
Ipswich Town manager Paul Hurst said:
“A win has been a long time coming and was unexpected coming here today – we were big underdogs, especially going 1-0 down.
“Swansea are a very good team and caused us, and other teams, a lot of problems.
“They played well and will be disappointed their final ball or final shot let them down.
“We had to ride our luck but we have not had much (luck), so I am not going to complain about that.”
