The sterility of the opening 45 minutes failed to inspire the supporters as the pedestrian tempo and limited commitment matched that of a pre-season exhibition match.

However, an early change from Sean Dyche in the second half, with the introduction of Stanislas, prompted a more urgent, energetic and determined display from the Clarets.

And Stanislas made his presence known with a goal of real quality after an hour played.

Picking up Chris McCann's pass, the 23-year-old winger drove forwards before unleashing an unstoppable strike from 20 yards into the top corner, giving Ipswich goalkeeper Scott Loach no chance.

Martin Paterson then rounded things off in style with an 88th minute tap-in from Danny Lafferty's header.
