The Black Cats boss was delighted that his side followed up their battling 2-2 draw at Highbury, after falling two goals behind, with a stunning response to Marcus Stewart`s opener.
"Ipswich are a very strong team on their travels and we were a little sloppy in certain circumstances," said Reid. "But I thought we played really well when we got into our stride and the pace of the game.
"We`ve got a lot of good players here now, even looking at the bench. We have a decent squad and I decided to rest a couple of players because it was a hard game against Arsenal.
"Daniele Dichio was different class and Julio Arca, who scored a free kick, I thought did well as well.
"It was a really good performance. We passed the ball and the movement was terrific.
"And Phillips was absolutely outstanding."
