‘Such a laugh’, ‘Dreadful’ – These Ipswich fans are split after Doncaster reverse

Ipswich Town slipped to their first defeat of the season last night, and it already has supporters at each other’s throats on social media.

The Tractor Boys had led the table going into their promotion six-pointer with Doncaster Rovers, but were brushed aside at the Keepmoat by a slick and organised Rovers side. Two goals for Ben Whiteman, plus goals for Cameron John and former Shrewsbury man Fejiri Okenabirhie saw Darren Moore’s side come from behind after Joe Wright had bagged on own goal to put the visitors 1-0 up.

Ipswich had only conceded twice in the league and looked set for another good night after Wright’s early calamity, but John fired a powerful drive off the underside of the bar to level thirteen minutes later. Before half time, Whiteman’s cross evaded everyone and ended up in the net, handing the advantage to the hosts.

Toto Nsial’s clumsy challenge gave Whiteman the chance to add a third from 12 yards before Okenabirhie rounded off a good evening for the hosts in South Yorkshire. Ipswich, who were missing Kayden Jackson, slipped to second, level on points with Lincoln City.

After the game, fans were divided over what happens next. Some were happy to write it off as a bad result, whilst others have a deeper foreboding. They visit Lincoln City this weekend, a side that beat them 5-3 in the same fixture last season prompting a spectacular collapse which resulted in them falling out of the top six. Some fear a repeat of last season, which has led to divided views on social media, as you’ll see below.
