IPSWICH Town striker Nathan Ellington has joined struggling League One side Scunthorpe United on loan.

Since Paul Jewell brought his former Wigan and Derby forward to Portman Road on a two-year deal, the 31-year-old has started just three games and made a further 16 substitute appearances.

And having seen moves to Bristol Rovers and Notts County blocked in the summer, new Blues boss Mick McCarthy has allowed the out-of-favour forward to join fourth-from-bottom third-tier side Scunthorpe on loan.

Ellington trained with Town this morning before heading to Glanford Park, where he will remain until Janaury 5.

He could make his debut for Iron in their home game against Notts County on Saturday.

  • NE was a shocking signing. Never recaptured the form he showed at wigan. Of to scunny and out of contract at the end of the season. Things moving tin the right direction

  • He was never given a chance to show what he can do by PJ and I think the loan move to Scunthorpe will benefit both that club and Nathan. Anyway good luck to him there.

  • I am getting to like MM more by the day, two full backs and Ellington moved on all done in one week.. why PJ couldn't see this is baffling.

  • Most Town rejects of recent years have seen the third division as a stepping stone to playing at a higher level than Town within a year. Maybe The Duke will break that embarrasing mould.

Ipswich Town lost 1-0 at rock-bottom Rotherham yesterday. Blues reporter Stuart Watson gives his verdict.

Ipswich Town’s inconsistent season continued with a 1-0 defeat at rock-bottom Rotherham on Saturday, the big talking point being Mick McCarthy’s decision to make nine changes to his starting XI.

Copleston 0

The Ipswich Town ladies development team were crowned deserved champions of the Suffolk Girls and Womens Football League, after comfortably beating Copleston 6-0, in a game where plenty of chances were created but weren’t finished off by the home side.

I had a wild and foolish thought on Saturday morning.

Ipswich Town lost 1-0 at Rotherham United in a Championship match on Saturday. Here’s your Blues analysis.

Ipswich Town boss Mick McCarthy has no regrets over making wholesale changes to his team for this afternoon’s 1-0 defeat at rock-bottom Rotherham United.

It’s beyond typical that I should have to write this column on the back of the 1-0 defeat at already-relegated Rotherham United after missing out on writing in the aftermath of that fantastic win over Newcastle United a week ago.
