Morris Nets First Senior Goal
Saturday, 24th Nov 2018 17:09
On-loan Blues striker Ben Morris netted his first senior goal as Forest Green Rovers beat Carlisle 2-1 at Brunton Park in League Two.
Morris put Rovers ahead in the 13th minute as he made his first league start having previously made three starts in the Checkatrade Trophy in addition to one appearance from the bench in the league.
The 19-year-old is on loan for the season but with the Blues able to cut his spell short in January.
Elsewhere, Tristan Nydam was an unused sub as his loan club St Johnstone drew 0-0 at home with Kilmarnock in the Scottish Premiership.
Right-back Josh Emmanuel was in the Shrewsbury side which won 3-2 away at Wycombe Wanderers in League One.
Centre-half Luke Woolfenden played the full 90 minutes as Swindon won 1-0 at Port Vale in League Two.
Neither Aaron Drinan nor Pat Webber were involved for their loan clubs Sutton and Braintree in the Vanarama National League.
Meanwhile, today’s results in the Championship mean the Blues are now six points - plus goal difference - from safety with Millwall and Bolton in 21st and 22nd respectively having drawn 1-1 at the Den.
Reading, 20th, also picked up a point via a 0-0 draw at Wigan, while Hull, 23rd, were beaten 2-0 at Nottingham Forest.
Elsewhere, former Blues boss Mick McCarthy is expected to be confirmed as manager of the Republic of Ireland tomorrow, returning to the role he previously occupied between 1996 and 2002.

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.
