Jon Stead’s 29th second opener set Ipswich on their way to a convincing 3-1 win over Blackpool, although it could and perhaps should have been a much bigger scoreline for Roy Keane’s fast improving side, who now move out of the relegation zone- rejoice! Or not, as Keano may tell you…

Jack Colback rounded off a very good first half and make it 2-0 to the home side with a sublime finish when clean through on goal as the board was about to go up for stoppage time, while Gareth McAuley got his third goal of the season on 71 minutes, four minutes after Blackpool had pulled a goal back through Ian Evatt.

Town amassed a number of chances, and on another day Walters would have scored at least one of them. The defence doesn’t look so shaky as it did at the start of the season with Damien Delaney as solid as anyone at centre back alongside McAuley.

It was another good win over a top six side for the Blues, just a fortnight after their 2-1 win over Cardiff in Wales. The result extends Ipswich’s unbeaten run to 10 games.

Full report to follow.
