Swansea's two-goal hero Craig Beattie revealed he targeted Ipswich goalkeeper Brian Murphy's lack of height.
Beattie scored a spectacular goal to complete his brace as he struck a sublime goal that went right in the corner of the goal over a helpless Murphy.
Andros Townsend had put Ipswich ahead, but goals from Beattie, which were sandwiched by an effort from Joe Allen, helped them claim the win.
"To be fair, it's a sweet strike," Beattie told Sky Sports.
"I've seen that the keeper was not the biggest, and I mentioned it to a couple of lads before the game.
"When it fell to me I thought 'I'm going to have a pop' and I didn't expect it to finish in the stanchion.
"It's a big result, we lost the last game but when we've lost games, we've bounced back and we've done it again today.
"We went a goal behind, but we've shown character, quality and strength - and we've won the game."
Just prior to Beattie's equaliser, he was about to be substituted by boss Brendan Rodgers, which he admitted he was aware off.
He continued: "I had half an idea, and had a quick look at the bench, and when I saw them [the substitutes] sat down I thought 'thank goodness it went in'.
Fellow goal scorer Allen added: "It's disappointing to go a goal down, especially away from home.
"But one thing we do have is resolve, and if we go a goal down and we have the determination and talent to come back from that.
"It shows the character in the squad to get the three goals."
