WOLVES 1 IPSWICH TOWN 1

JOE ROYLE made an inspired late double substitution to snatch Ipswich a point at Molineux.

Wolves seemed to be cruising towards a rapid Division One double over Town, following the Midlanders' 4-2 win at Portman Road two weeks ago.

Former England midfielder Paul Ince fired Wolves ahead shortly after half-time.

But the game turned after Town boss Royle sent on Martijn Reuser and Richard Naylor.

With seven minutes left, Reuser crossed in a free-kick from the right and Naylor – with almost his first touch – headed powerfully into the net.

Suddenly, after creating almost no chances earlier, it was Ipswich who finished strongly.

It was a point boldly won, but in the end the points denied to Wolves could prove as valuable to the Blues in the promotion hunt.

With 12 games left, they lie eighth, seven points behind Wolves, who are in the last play-off place. Town are now level on points with Norwich, who lost 1-0 at home to Reading with a Darren Kenton own-goal.
