IPSWICH Wanderers dealt AFC Sudbury's Ridgeons Premier Division title hopes a severe blow when they beat the pace-setters 4-0 at Kings Marsh in a thriller last night.

Sudbury's cause was not helped when Noble was sent off for a reckless two-footed tackle, leaving his side down to ten men for an hour.

Ipswich Wanderers took full advantage of their extra man, taking the lead in the first minute of the second half, after Abrahams had missed a great chance to put the home side ahead. Ipswich attacked immediately and Lowe shot powerfully past Rutherford.

They followed up with a second when Rutherford could only palm a cross against the bar before falling, for Barber to score with an overhead kick.

Hyde missed a chance to reduce the deficit before Wanderers went further ahead, a fine bout of passing ending with Hetherington shooting into the roof of the net. Their scoring was completed when Hyde failed to clear a corner, and Banya found the net from close range.
