Four of Ipswich Town’s next six fixtures are at home. STUART WATSON takes a look at the run in detail.

Ipswich Town boss Mick McCarthy believes Newcastle United are destined for the Championship title after his team were comfortably beaten 3-0 at St James’ Park this afternoon.

The extra quality of Championship table-toppers Newcastle United showed as Ipswich Town were comfortably beaten 3-0 at St James’ Park this afternoon.

Ipswich will be looking to notch up another win after defeating Burton, while Newcastle will be aiming to stay top of the table, but both sets of fans will be remembering the former manager their clubs shared – Sir Bobby Robson.

Ipswich Town manager Mick McCarthy says it would be tantamount to tactical suicide to go all-out attack at Championship table-toppers Newcastle United this afternoon.

Ipswich Town boss Mick McCarthy has everything crossed that the fit-again Daryl Murphy does not come back to haunt his side at Championship table-toppers Newcastle United tomorrow.

At last! Ipswich Town have scored some goals – and after 10 months Freddie Sears even managed to grab one as well, much to the delight of himself and his teammates.

Being a dad helped Freddie Sears switch off from football during his recent 38-game goalless spell.

Ipswich Town boss Mick McCarthy admits he was a relieved man after his team finally got back to winning ways tonight.
