Town Still Top After Tuesday Games
Tuesday, 22nd Oct 2019 22:03
Town remain top of League One following Tuesday evening’s fixtures but now only on goal difference from Wycombe Wanderers, although with two games in hand. The Blues face Rotherham at Portman Road on Wednesday.
The Chairboys, whose goal difference is five worse than the Blues’, drew 1-1 at Blackpool, while third-placed Peterborough and Fleetwood in fourth are in action tomorrow against Accrington at home and at Coventry respectively. Fifth-placed Oxford don’t have a midweek game.
Saturday’s opponents Southend United, who confirmed Sol Campbell as their new boss and ex-Blues defender Hermann Hreidarsson as his assistant coach earlier today, had a disastrous night.
The 23rd-placed Shrimpers were thrashed 7-1 by Doncaster Rovers, who are sixth, at Roots Hall having been reduced to nine men.
Ethan Hamilton was shown a straight red card for a high challenge in only the sixth minute, then Stephen McLaughlin followed him into the dressing room on 53. Both players will miss the Blues’ visit to Roots Hall on Saturday.
Elsewhere, former Town striker Daryl Murphy netted his first goal for Bolton as the bottom-of-the-table Trotters won 2-0 at Bristol Rovers, their first victory of the season, while Sunderland beat Tranmere Rovers 5-0 at home.

Politics and Ipswich Town by ElephantintheRoom
You might just have noticed that the TWTD Forum is awash with political comment. Annoying for some perhaps, who only want to discuss Norwood’s fitness – but surely no bad thing, given the stark choices facing us at a critical time in the country’s history?
The Story Behind the Billy Kee Banner by ThatMuhrenCross
Sunday's defeat to Accrington Stanley was the first real low point of what has been a fantastic season following Ipswich Town. The performance on the field was nowhere near the standards we'd expect of a team that was flying high at the top of the table.
History Boys and Renaissance Men by Stowmarket
How many of us who were fortunate enough to have followed ITFC back in 1980 realised at the time that we were indeed blessed to be around to witness the greatest ever Ipswich Town side?
Round Three: Eagle by Kropotkin123
Par was set at five points from one win and two draws. We managed to get a haul of seven points, which means we were two under par. Google promises me that this is an eagle.
