‘Season over’, ‘What a joke’ – Plenty of Ipswich fans voice their anger after Blackpool defeat

Ipswich’s miserable run of form continued as they were beaten 2-1 this afternoon at Bloomfield Road.

Blackpool are without a permanent manager, but former Blackburn midfielder David Dunn is filling in admirably. He saw his side all-but banish any small fears of a relegation battle, whilst his opposite number’s woes continue.

Paul Lambert had been expected to have Ipswich in the top six at least this season, but they lost further ground on those above them thanks to a last-gasp winner that the hosts had to work hard for.

Kiernan Dewsbury-Hall put the Seasiders in front in the first half, only for Freddie Sears to grab an equaliser after half time in an engrossing encounter.

The Tractor Boys then looked likely to win the game, Alan Judge and Will Keane forcing good saves from Chris Maxwell in the sticks. Their wastefulness in front of goal came back to haunt them in the final minutes when another former Blackburn man turned the tie on its head.

The hosts broke away on a quick counter-attack and Joe Nuttall glanced home a header after a cross from the excellent Liam Feeney.

The result leaves Ipswich in ninth, five points outside the top six with a mountain to climb. It is fair to say their supporters are not impressed, having expected a title challenge, not midtable obscurity.
