Jon Stead delights in scoring winner against Ipswich Town

JON Stead made no excuses for not celebrating his last minute winner against former club Ipswich Town.

The 29-year-old spoke with genuine respect for his previous employers at the end, but – being the professional he is – did not hold back when netting what could be a hugely important strike for the rock-bottom Robins.

“It’s never sweet to score against a former club and I have had fond memories of every club I have ever been at,” said Stead.

“It’s more about the job at hand with my current club and the points today will go a long way to retaining our Championship status.”

The man who scored 20 goals in 67 appearances for Town, added: “Ipswich will be fine. They have made some good loan signings, got a decent squad and Mick McCarthy knows the division well.

“I am sure they will not have any problems and you can see the difference he has made already.

“They (Ipswich team) are a good bunch of lads and I am sure they will be fine.”

Bristol City remain bottom, but their comeback victory means they have closed the gap on 21st-placed Ipswich to just seven points, with a game in hand to come.

Town host sixth-place Middlesbrough on Saturday.

  • Only 20 goals in 67 appearances speaks volumes for a regular goalscorer when he is elsewhere. Ipswich have become a bad club under evans and his 3 clown managers and will find it very hard to get loaned players that are of any quality!!!

Former Ipswich Town star Darren Ambrose is confident that his beloved Blues will come good under manager Mick McCarthy following a ‘transitional period’.

Ipswich Town will host National League outfit Lincoln City in the third round of the Emirates FA Cup, after the Imps defeated League One side, Oldham Athletic, 3-2, at Sincil Bank on Monday night.

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.
