Wrapped up with lots of extra layers almost 20,000 fans came to see if Ipswich could carry on where they left off at Rotherham?

In the early stages it looked promising with Murphy looking nimble, Seers making some excellent runs and Douglas looking dangerous too.

Some of the passing was very attractive on the eye and after Douglas put us in front it felt like a win was on the cards.

The rain began to fall and the light to fade and the tight passing was replaced by rather scrappy play, lots of aimless headers and careless moves, changed the complexion of the game. Wolves equalised through Henry and by then we could have no complaints.

The loudest crowd reaction came when ex Norwich pantomime villain, Grant Holt, warmed up along the touchline and enjoyed tantalizing the Ipswich fans with a broad smile on his face.

The atmosphere picked up significantly when he ran up and down the touchline and more of the crowd seemed to be watching him than the game! The North Stand rediscovered some old songs. I hope Delia Smith wasn’t listening to the last one!

In the second half Ipswich again pressed forward and were rewarded with another goal for Daryl Murphy, following on from his hat-trick at Rotherham.

But once again Ipswich took their foot off the gas and lost their shape allowing Wolves to come back into the game with an equaliser from Afobe.

The last part of the match saw end to end chances and it really could have gone either way.

We saw the best and the worst of Ipswich today. It was as if the team had two different personalities!

We now head into three matches on Sky and let’s hope we can reverse the trend of performing poorly in front of the live cameras.

It’s Dr Jekyll we need and he is on TV too at the moment!

CMC.
