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.

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.
