IPSWICH defender Jason De Vos is determined the play-off curse won't return to haunt the Blues.

And the ex-Wigan star today insisted he had no regrets - despite seeing his former club deny Town an immediate route into the Premiership.

Wigan's 3-1 win over Reading secured the Championship runners-up spot and ensured Ipswich lost any hope of automatic promotion.

Town's 1-1 draw at Brighton was rendered academic as they finished in third spot and were condemned to a two-legged clash with West Ham - a repeat of their play-off tie with the Hammers 12 months ago.

It will be Town's seventh appearance in the play-offs and they have been successful just once before.
