DAVID Sheepshanks today gave Ipswich Town boss Joe Royle a vote of confidence.

DAVID Sheepshanks today gave Ipswich Town boss Joe Royle a vote of confidence.

Not the hollow commendation from beleaguered club chairmen that more often than not leads to a parting of the ways, but a sincere tribute to a manager who Blues chairman Sheepshanks describes as a "tower of strength".

"We have four games left and we are hanging in there. Everything is still possible."
