Ipswich Town were beaten 2-0 at home by QPR this afternoon.
Ipswich Town finally registered their first victory of the season, at the 13th attempt, when edging a five-goal thriller at Swansea City prior to last weekend’s international break.
Now they face five crucial looking fixtures over the coming three weeks – four of those games against teams around them in the lower reaches of the Championship table, starting with tomorrow’s visit of QPR.
The Blues have so far drawn against Blackburn, Aston Villa, Norwich, Brentford and Bolton on Suffolk soil, before losing 2-0 to Middlesbrough last time out at Portman Road.
In actual fact, the last time we saw the traditional post-match fist-pump celebrations from captain Luke Chambers in front of the Sir Bobby Robson Stand was the 1-0 victory against Leeds way back on January 13 due to the fact he was injured for the 1-0 win against Barnsley (Mick McCarthy’s last game in charge) on April 10.
