On-Loan Striker Moore Red-Carded as Rotherham Lose
Saturday, 2nd Dec 2017 23:08
On-loan Blues striker Kieffer Moore was red-carded as Rotherham were beaten 2-1 at Bristol Rovers in League One.
Moore, 25, the joint-top scorer in the top four English divisions, was dismissed in the 79th minute when he clashed with Rovers’ defender Lee Brown, who went to ground.
Blues right-back Josh Emmanuel, who is also on loan at the New York Stadium, was not in the 18.
Town boss Mick McCarthy has said he’ll cut Moore’s loan spell short when the transfer window opens and bring him back to Portman Road, unless the Blues receive a “bonkers offer” for the £20,000 January signing from Forest Green Rovers.
As he is facing a three-match ban as a result of today's ordering-off, Torquay-born Moore would play only two more games for the Millers if McCarthy recalls him as soon as the January window opens.
Elsewhere, George Fowler played the full 90 minutes as Aldershot drew 0-0 at Torquay United in the Vanarama National League. As a result, the Shots dropped from top to fourth.
Fellow Blue Adam McDonnell, who along with Fowler extended his spell with the Hampshire side into a fourth month yesterday, missed the game as he was suspended having been sent off during Tuesday’s 2-0 win at Bromley.
Blues defender Chris Smith was in the Chelmsford City side which drew 1-1 at home to Hungerford Town in the National League South.
Keeper Harry Wright kept a clean sheet as East Thurrock United won 3-0 at Welling United in the National League South.
Another young Blues keeper, Nick Hayes, was in the Dunstable Town team which lost 1-0 at Hitchin in the Evo-Stik League Southern Division.

What Would Eric Gates Say? by millvalleyblue
I started supporting Ipswich when I was six. I’m 49 now and live in Mill Valley, just north of San Francisco. I grew up in Cork. People always ask: Ipswich? Why? The reason was my best friend, Christopher, supported Ipswich. I’ve no reason why he did. All the other kids supported Liverpool, Manchester United, Arsenal or Leeds.
Feeling Very Blue Not Watching You by Pessimistic
Being an overseas supporter means I get to see all the live streams of Ipswich Town games for a seasonal subscription fee. Great idea! Well, it used to be, until one day I could not log in and asked iFollow to resend my password.
Man v Fat Football - A Personal Blog by GavTWTD
I'm fat. There, I said it. I'm a 248lb/112kg bloke in my late 40s and I'm struggling with my weight. I've lacked the will power to either do something about it or, when I've succeeded, to keep it off.
Where We Might Be Without Asset Stripping by David_GG
I am writing today to put forward my opinion about the sorry sad state of Ipswich Town and I suspect a number of other clubs around the land with supporters who feel as if they are suffering at the hands otherwise hugely successful businessmen and women as owners.
Where Did It All Go Wrong for Paul Hurst? by Herbivore
The dust has not yet settled on the reign of Town's shortest-serving permanent manager, a reign the significance and memorability of which is likely to be more dependent on our post-Paul Hurst fate than on his mere 14 league games in charge.
