Time is running out and more than ever the team needs their fans to believe that the Nationwide league is simply not an option.

"Today just showed how expensive a missed penalty can be. I enjoyed the game but any less than a win is always a disappointment. It is getting worrying as the nearer we get to the finish the more people are resigning themselves to relegation. But I will always be behind them and it is still possible they may miss going down.
"My father Ray Ellis was an Ipswich Town player many years ago and I will never let them down and stop supporting them," he said.
There have been moments of great excitement this season like the thrills of Moscow and Helsingborgs but in these darker days Burley and the boys need their fans behind them.
Martin Harper came with his family to watch the game, he said: "It was a good game and Ipswich did well but it just seemed like neither side wanted to score. I just hope they can pull through."
The league is tighter than ever and while those at the top battle it out for the championship Ipswich Town must fight to the death to hold on to Premiership status
The Evening Star's support is not weakening and while the team need to make every point count they can rest assured that their town is behind them helping to Keep The Dream Alive.
