Lynden Gooch has revealed what really happened at Ipswich Town

The attacking midfielder slotted home from inside the area to snatch a point at Portman Road, while taking his tally to two goals in two games this season.

His strike in East Anglia owed a lot to the hard work and persistence of loanee Marc McNulty, who won back possession before teeing up the American.

But some fans were concerned when a short video clip on Twitter seemed to suggest Gooch did not thank his teammate during his goal celebration.

The 23-year-old, however, has clarified that he did indeed thank the Reading loanee after netting – with the clip ending before he went over to his attacking partner.

In a response to a fan on Twitter, Gooch said: “If you actually watched the game... I turned back round and thanked him for setting the goal up.”
