Derby 0-1 Ipswich : Callum Connolly’s goal was enough for Ipswich as they won 1-0 at Derby this evening.
The Blues lost 2-0 at Aston Villa on Saturday and have now claimed just 14 points from their last 14 games.
Mick McCarthy’s men may be among the division’s leading scorers, but no-one outside the bottom five has conceded more. And the Blues haven’t kept a clean sheet away from home in the league for 18 matches now.
Derby climbed into sixth-spot with an eye-catching 3-0 win at Middlesbrough on Saturday – Matej Vydra scoring a hat-trick.
Gary Rowett’s in-form side – which contains ex-Blues loan star Tom Lawrence and arch-nemesis striker David Nugent (15 goals in 15 games against Town) – have lost just one of their last 11 and won six of the last eight.
