Ipswich Town suffered the heartbreak of getting so close to the Premiership but then seeing the promised land disappear on the last day of the regular Coca Cola Championship season.

It was Brighton who ended up celebrating at the Withdean Stadium when the 1-1 scoreline ensured the home team would survive relegation while Town are left to negotiate the minefield that is the play-offs if they are to gain promotion to the Premiership.

Royle must now lift his players and get them on song for the battles against a Hammers side that beat Ipswich in the play-off semi-finals last season.
