Ipswich Town's Daryl Murphy in 'prolific' spell

Ipswich Town striker Daryl Murphy believes he is currently in the best form of his career.

The 31-year-old has seven goals this term and six from his last eight games.

"I've played well in the past but I don't think I've been as prolific as I have the last few games," he told BBC Radio Suffolk.

"I need to keep working hard and make sure I maintain that. There's no point having those goals and going out and not doing it again for a while."

Murphy's haul of 13 goals last season was his best to date, and his tally this term already matches his third best for any one campaign.

His strike in Tuesday's 3-1 loss to Cardiff was a superb half-volley, and the Irishman has praised assistant manager Terry Connor for improving his confidence in training.

"He's brilliant. All of his sessions are really enjoyable and he needs to take a lot of credit with the work he does with the strikers," said Murphy.

"Now and again you get a period where you get a little break where things go for you. It's been happening for me and you take a lot of belief and confidence from that."
