On-Loan Striker Moore Nets 13th of Season
Saturday, 11th Nov 2017 15:35
On-loan Town striker Kieffer Moore netted his 13th goal of the season in the sixth minute of injury time as Rotherham United claimed a last-gasp 1-1 draw at Doncaster Rovers in League One at lunchtime.
The 25-year-old, who has made 16 league starts and one sub appearance for the Millers this season, remains the top scorer in the top four divisions in England and looks set to have his spell with the South Yorkshiremen cut short by the Blues in January.
Speaking a fortnight ago, Town boss Mick McCarthy said: “The intention was to send him out to see whether he could get games and score goals and then we’d take a view on it. And that’s still the same.
“But, of course, the more he’s scoring goals, the view is that he’s more likely to come back here at Christmas and see whether he can replicate it in the Championship. And that’s my intention, that’s always been my intention.”
In the League One scoring charts Moore continues to lead former Blues Brett Pitman, who later on Saturday afternoon took his total to 11, scoring twice as Portsmouth won 3-2 at Blackpool, and Jack Marriott, who has netted 10 times for Peterborough following his summer switch from Luton.
Fellow Blue Josh Emmanuel started for the Millers at right-back before being subbed in the 74th minute in favour of striker Jonson Clarke-Harris as Rotherham looked for an equaliser, skipper Richard Wood’s own goal having given Doncaster the lead in the 62nd minute.
Meanwhile, Flynn Downes has been named in the starting line-up for the England U19s in their European Championships qualifier agaist Iceland in Bulgaria this afternoon (KO 4.30pm UK time).
Downes, 18, will be winning his third U19s cap. The game can be watched live online via Bulgarian TV.

An Uncomfortable Truth by TBT
The Marcus Evans group of companies numbers over 30 different organisations and having a lame duck subsidiary running at a loss has its merits in terms of taxation.
This Might Rub You Up the Wrong Way, it Might Not! by delias_cheesy_flaps
“What is a club in any case? Not the buildings or the directors or the people who are paid to represent it. It’s not the television contracts, get-out clauses, marketing departments or executive boxes. It’s the noise, the passion, the feeling of belonging, the pride in your city. It’s a small boy clambering up the stadium steps for the very first time, gripping his father’s hand, gawping at that hallowed stretch of turf beneath him, and without being able to do a thing about it, falling in love.”
Identity Crisis by andygri
As someone born in the mid 1970s, I am part of the generation that has seen Ipswich Town Football Club move in and out of the footballing limelight over the last 40 years.
Pre-Derby Hope and Hype by TimS
I hate the phrase 'Old Farm derby'. There are plenty of patronising phrases that have, and are still thrown at me when I talk about our club, but the 'Old Farm derby' degenerates our derby into nothing more than a Country Show debate over who has the biggest tractor. Quaint, sweet but slightly pathetic, not understood by anyone outside East Anglia.

That game away at Bolton summed up in my view all that is wrong with Ipswich Town Football Club.
