“R.I.P Dad... I know u r in the better place now... Love u so much,” Bialkowski wrote on the social networking site, accompanied by a picture of his father.

Other Twitter users, including the Bialkowski’s former teammate Stephen Hunt, offered words of support to the ‘keeper.

  • I am so very sorry for your loss. I had the pleasure of meeting your father in September last year at the Ipswich V Rotherham home match, I arrived at Portman Rd and found I had not got my season ticket! Your father saw I was upset and immediately gave me 2 match tickets for the Coop stand ! He wouldn't take any payment and he told me with great pride in his voice that Bart Bialkowski was his son and a goalkeeper for Ipswich Town. I was so pleased and very grateful for your father's generosity and kindness, I will always remember that special day and his lovely smile.

  • Condolences to the guy and his family from north of the Waveney. Having been in the same boat myself I know it's a tough call to go back to work, let alone work in the public and TV eye. Hope he's given suitable time to come to terms with it as some things are far more important than football.

Ipswich Town will play National League outfit Lincoln City or League One side Oldham Athletic in the third round of the Emirates FA Cup.

Ex-Ipswich Town homegrown star Titus Bramble is back at the club as a youth team coach. STUART WATSON spoke to him about an emotional trip to Ghana and how he wants the Blues’ current teenagers not to repeat his mistakes.

Ipswich Town’s inconsistent form continued with a 2-0 defeat at Bristol City on Saturday and has left supporters wondering just what their club’s ambitions are for the future.

Just what is the plan? Ipswich Town fans deserve some clarity because it’s impossible to work out what the club’s short, medium and long-term ambitions are right now.

Ipswich Town boss Mick McCarthy admits it has been ‘one step forwards, one step back’ for his side this season following today’s 2-0 defeat at Bristol City.

Ipswich Town lost 2-0 at Bristol City for the second season in succession courtesy of a controversial first half penalty and a second half screamer.

It was the Blue’s biggest win of the season – but after defeating QPR Mick McCarthy’s men now have to show they can start putting together back-to-back wins in order to climb up the table.

Ipswich Town head to Ashton Gate this afternoon, aiming to record back-to-back wins in the Championship for the first time this season.

Cole Skuse returns to Ashton Gate for the first time as an opposition player today, when his Ipswich Town side travel to Bristol City.

One goal either way could well prove decisive when Ipswich Town play at Ashton Gate, the home of Bristol City, tomorrow (3pm kick-off).
