Smith Skippers All Whites to Draw
Wednesday, 14th Nov 2012 13:43
Blues defender Tommy Smith skippered New Zealand to a 1-1 friendly draw with China in Shanghai earlier this afternoon.
Zhao Peng put the home side ahead before Chris Wood, who is currently on loan at Millwall from West Brom, equalised for the All Whites just before half-time.
The Town centre-half thought his side should have claimed a victory: "I thought they were more of a counter-attacking team and we had more of the ball.
"We were passing it around well and created a few chances and we feel like we should have won the game."
Smith, who was back in the Town side for Saturday’s victory over Burnley, was winning his 21st full cap.

The Consolations of Philosophy by everhopeful
We made it. In the end we made it by a hair’s breadth, by a missed Darren Bent penalty, by Noel Hunt’s last-gasp winner against Charlton, by any number of scrambled, lucky, happy moments. But we made it. And if it were easy, it wouldn’t be Ipswich.
Harry Was Right (Potter, Not the One From Bath). The Only Thing We Should Fear is Fear Itself by commuterblue
I fear nothing in the play-offs. Some say we struggle against the big teams. Given the disappointing results against our northern neighbours this might seem credible. But, objectively, what do this year's results suggest?
The 21st Minute by pablop
On Easter Monday last year I took my 86-year-old father to his first football match. I had recently moved back from Wiltshire to support my ageing parents. Although not ideal, this did enable me to come to regular home matches having only recently seen Town play at Reading, Bristol or Cardiff and very occasionally at Portman Road.
We Love You and This is the Way We Like It by Pickersblue22
Two games. 180 minutes. That’s all it is. All that stands between us and a place in the top six. Another 180 minutes. The chance of a Wembley final. Possibly against our nearest and not so dearest. It’s all in our hands. We can reach out and touch it. Thirteen years of hurt could be ended. We’re almost there.
Sorry Folks! by stevieiriswattii
For 25 years I have been away from the area and only able to attend a game or so a season, this was after previously being a season ticket holder in the late 80s.
