IPSWICH Town edged closer to the play-offs in a 1-1 draw with Sheffield United last night.

Ian Westlake grabbed the crucial 72nd minute goal that earned the Blues a point from a pulsating clash at Bramall Lane.

That left Joe Royle's men needing victory over visiting Cardiff in next weekend's final game of the Nationwide League First Division campaign to be certain of finishing in the top six.

Westlake grabbed his seventh goal of the campaign to cancel out the Blades' opener - a 64th minute penalty by Andy Gray after Fabian Wilnis had tripped Michael Tonge.
