Ipswich 1 Brighton 2
IT was another thoroughly depressing afternoon for the followers of Ipswich Town.
Their run without a win was stretched to seven games as Brighton kept their hopes alive of staying in the Championship for two more days at least.
Everybody at Portman Road was hoping for a stylish Easter show from the Blues, but they rarely threatened a goal, and at the back look insecure.
The midfield started off brightly enough, but were second best to lowly Brighton, in another bad day for the Blues.

On the evidence of the last few weeks Ipswich do not look equipped to step up several gears and make a serious promotion push in 2006/07. There appears much work to do.
Gifton Noel-Williams opened the scoring in first half stoppage time, with Joel Lynch adding a second in the 72nd minute as Town ended well beaten despite Nicky Forster's late goal.
Ipswich will need to improve at Watford on Monday or face a the prospect of a big defeat.
