Jay Emmanuel-Thomas believes he is starting to get back to his best after winning back his place in the Ipswich team.

Emmanuel-Thomas missed two months of the campaign after Mick McCarthy lost patience with the former Arsenal trainee's attitude during an Under-21 game against Charlton.

The 22-year-old has since returned to McCarthy's line-up but admits he has not yet won over all of the Portman Road fans.

He told the East Anglian Daily Times: "My head was in a bad place during the Charlton game.

"I played in the game and I scored but it did not really mean anything.

"I had a conversation with Mick McCarthy and I apologised and since then I have been getting back to the levels I was at before."

He added: "I am like Marmite, and the fans either like me or they don't, but that doesn't faze me."
