Ipswich Town drew 0-0 with Queens Park Rangers in their Boxing Day clash at Portman Road.

In a game of few chances, both Mick McCarthy and Ian Holloway admitted post-match that a draw was probably a fair outcome.

However, the Blues really should have had a lifeline in the closing moments, when Joe Garner’s goalbound header was stopped by the out-stretched arm of Jack Robinson in the box.

Then again, the Blues probably got away with one themselves moments later when Iorfa stooped to unconvincingly deal with a cross from the right. Referee Andy Davies ruled it had hit his chest, though there may have been an arm involved too.

McCarthy was honest enough to say that both should have been spot-kicks.
