Ipswich against Leeds United might have filled us with dread a few weeks ago but not now.
Ipswich are playing attractive and purposeful football and after this exciting encounter are now unbeaten in four games; having drawn three matches against top teams and beaten Aston Villa who had just spent around 77 million in the transfer market.
The old excitement is back and so are the crowds. This match saw nearly 19,000 attend, which was a significant increase on previous home matches.
The atmosphere is back on the streets and in the ground as well. Great credit must be given to Mick and Terry for the revival when they were seriously up against it.
The players showed real hunger and could well have won the match with David McGoldrick and Freddie Sears coming very close. The midfield was excellent with Emyr Huws and Grant Ward both having great games.
Jordan Spence was also superb in defence, as were the whole back line, including Captain Chambers – playing after his heroic equaliser last Tuesday against Brighton that left him with a cracked rib!
This was an excellent football match with both sides playing well. Freddie Sears scored our goal and it was well deserved as he works tirelessly week in week out for scamp reward.
It is a pity that this turnaround had not happened a while earlier but better late than never.
This is good stuff! Let’s maintain this excellent standard at rivals Norwich next Sunday and perhaps we can surprise them too!
