DANNY Collins celebrated extending is loan spell at Ipswich by another week with two goals at Forest but ended up on the losing side.

Joel Lynch nodded in an equaliser seven minutes from time and then Marcus Tudgay headed in a late, late winner to earn Steve Cotterill`s side back to back wins.

The Blues started the brighter with Jason Scotland going close in the first minute but after that Forest pretty much nullified Ipswich, especially by ou-smarting the diamond formation

The Tractor Boys went ahead in the 26th minute when Collins glanced in an Aaron Cresswell free kick swung in from the right flank.

US international striker Findley found Forest`s equaliser moments before the break when he bundled in a Lewis McGugan free kick.

But the centre-half, on loan from Stoke City, nodded in his second from a Jimmy Bullard corner on the hour.

Aaron Cresswell denied Forest when he cleared off the line from a Luke Chambers header.

Collins was immense in both boxes but will be dispapointed to see his side lose to two headed goals.

  • Seems it all went pear shaped after PJ’s second and third subs came on…..Deary me, were the lads too busy counting their win bonuses on the Eighty minute mark when Forest got back into the game….Come on Town WAKE UP and smell the coffee before it is too late and we are going to be consigned to the Championship also rans again……….Terrible Town just TERRIBLE!!!!!!!!!

  • For such an experienced set of platers, under such an experienced manager, throw away alead yet again is unforrgivable. Something, or someone, has to gice soon

  • I really feel for Danny. He didn’t just get two good goals but made some very good blocks in the box but I’m afraid he was badly let down by some of his fellow defenders.

  • Is it my imagination, or has our form taken this nose-dive since the enforced changes were made to the team? Obviously Jewell found that one lineup that clicked perfectly and left it unchanged for many weeks, during which time we enjoyed a great spell of form. Then he was forced into changes with players injured, tired or otherwise distracted (e.g. Chopra, Scotland) and since then we haven’t looked any good. Maybe it’s not the diamond that’s the problem. Maybe it’s that Ipswich Town currently have only one XI that works. And that isn’t good.
