Edblog - Now let's get a run going!

LET'S all hope Ipswich Town are now on a convincing run - both home and away - after Saturday's convincing win over Derby County.

LET'S all hope Ipswich Town are now on a convincing run - both home and away - after Saturday's convincing win over Derby County.

True, Derby County players turned in their worst display for weeks - but the job had to be finished and Town scored two good goals and kept a clean sheet into the bargain. Well done to the strike force, Pablo and Jon, for their goals.

Not that there's much time to celebrate - the Blues move on to the other Blues, Birmingham City, tomorrow night at St Andrews. That will be a real test of manager Magilton's away credentials after the debacle that was Doncaster eight days ago.

Birmingham and neighbours Wolves are romping away at the top of the table - there's a 10-point gap between Ipswich and the second place currently held by the team from St Andrews.

If Jim and Co need any inspiration, they need to look no further than the Seasiders of Blackpool, a team Town beat 0-1 at Bloomfield Road recently.
