IPSWICH Town got back to winning ways tonight with a 3-1 victory over Leicester City at Portman Road.

Ipswich Town 3 Leicester City 1

Ipswich Town extended their unbeaten home run to 14 matches against ten-man Leicester tonight.

Pablo Counago, Alan Lee and Jon Walters all scored - they are now on nine goals each - with Iain Hume netting for the Foxes in front of just 17,938 fans at Portman Road.

Danny Haynes made his first start of the season and was instrumental in Town's opener after 19 minutes.

He pulled the ball back for Pablo Counago to finish from six yards for his ninth goal of the season.

The duo combined six minutes before the break to win a highly-contentious penalty which also saw City defender Patrick Kisnorbo dismissed.

Alan Lee made up for his miss on Saturday by beating Marton Fulop to give Town a 2-1 half-time lead.

The Foxes had earlier equalised when Iain Hume took advantage of some slack defending to get on the end of a Stephen Clemence header from the halfway line before chipping the hapless Neil Alexander.

While never really impressing, Ipswich took advantage of the superior numbers and Jon Walters got Town's third after a Pablo Counago header from David Wright's cross was blocked and fell to the Town attacker.
