Ipswich 6 Crewe 4
WHAT a match this was as Ipswich Town fans sang '6-4 to the Tractor boys'. This had a splendid if peculiar ring to it after a contest where Ipswich had scored eight of the 10 goals on a day when they showed sublime finishing skills but at times some very poor defending.
The main thing was to collect a home win after two previous League defeats at Portman Road and hopes swayed up and down until the job was finally done.
Tommy Miller scored two spectacular early goals but Ipswich's control went after Dean Ashton scored for Crewe in the 35th minute.

Martijn Reuser, doing well after coming on as substitute, scored a dazzling fourth for Town from some distance and then Pable Counago made it 5-3. James Robinson opened up the contest again after coming on as a substitute and it was not until two minutes from the end that Kuqi settled the nerves with a well taken goal to the left of the keeper.

Man of the Match: Tommy Miller reigned supreme on an afternoon when Ipswich scored some of their best goals of the season.
They managed to create and finish six times in great style, with Miller setting the way with a couple of great efforts in the fifth and ninth minutes.
However, in this amazing contest where Jim Magilton also impressed Ipswich defence looked ragged at times conceding four goals.
