    • FT: Ipswich 1-0 Burnley
    • 90' Leadbitter's off now for his second yellow! Stupid decision but the win should still be secure....
    • 90' Leadbitter, who's had a good game, is booked for unsporting behaviour and is sent off. More time wasted...
    • 88' Ipswich continue to dominate; it's currently looking like a very easy win for them; save any errors the win is surely theirs...
    • 78' Play now getting scrappy at Portman Road...
    • 74' Further chances of note yet to be created between these two teams...
    • 69' Edgar shoots just wide of the upright from jsut outside the penalty area! Ipswich remain the superior side and continue to deserve the lead but it continues to look fragile at only a solitary goal...
    • 58' Charlie Austin's off and replaced by Martin Paterson. Austin's not had much impact but he's still a capable goalscorer...
    • 55' Free-kick for Ipswich after Marney fouls Martin. Keiran Trippier routinely takes and Ipswich retain possession...
    • 51' Ipswich 1-0 Burnley! Chopra gives Ipswich a deserved lead after Martin's effort from a one-on-one is well saved by Grant. It's a simple finish for the striker as the loose ball came to him. A fifth consecutive home win could be on the cards for Ipswich
    • 49' Emmanuel-Thomas is next to go close! The former Arenal man shot from just inside the area but fired just wide of the left post. Now a Burnley free-kick for Leadbitter's foul on McCann...
    • 48' Great save by Grant, diving to stop Leadbitter's 30 yard effort! Ipswich really looking to score an early (second half) goal
    • 47' Ipswich start the second half brightly and are well on top...
    • 46' Second-half underway...
    • 45' HT: Ipswich 0-0 Burnley; Ipswich the better side there but far from dominant. Goalless is about right
    • 36' Good save there from Lee Grant as Bowyer shoots after being played in by Lee Martin, the ex-Manchester United trainee. Greater sight on goal now for Ipswich
    • 32' Lee Bowyer booked for unsporting behaviour. He'll have to be careful for the remainder of the evening
    • 20:11 Wasted chance there by Chopra; too much space given to Murphy on the left who created a good chance for the striker who somehow managed to volley against himself. Could have been the opener but Ipswich look lively nonetheless
    • 20:08 More threat again from Ipswich as a cross from Tomy Smith is cleared by Trippier; plenty of crosses coming into the penalty area tonight (is that the sort of service Chopra needs?)...
    • 20:06 Carlos Edwards is looking lively tonight; another cross from the right and though Chris McCann does well to clear, he could be a threat this evening
    • 19:56 Michael Chopra shoots wide following Daryl Murphy's cross from inside the area. He's capable of more and may regret that if Burnley take their chances...
    • 19:53 Decent-looking effort there from ex-Arsenal man Emmanuel-Thomas, but the shot's blocked. That's more like it between these two.
    • 19:52 Foul by Dean Marney on Jay Emmanuel-Thomas. Free kick to Ipswich, though in an unthreatening position
    • 19:51 Little of note currently at Portman Road; two tentative sides apparently waiting to truly get into gear
    • 19:50 Ipswich, meanwhile, have been among the biggest spenders in the Championship over recent years - in contrast to visiting Burnley - so they also need a win if the pressure isn't to grow on Paul Jewell
    • 19:31 IPSWICH: McCarthy, Cresswell, Delaney, Smith, Leadbitter, Edwards, Bowyer, Emmanuel-Thomas, Martin, Chopra, Murphy SUBS Lee-Barrett, Carson, Sonko, Stevenson, Drury /// BURNLEY: Grant, Trippier, Lafferty, Duff, Edgar, McCann, Marney, Stanislas, Bartley, Rodriguez, Austin SUBS Jensen, Mee, Wallace, McQuoid, Paterson
  • Summary

    • 90' Leadbitter's off now for his second yellow! Stupid decision but the win should still be secure....
    • 90' Leadbitter, who's had a good game, is booked for unsporting behaviour and is sent off. More time wasted...
    • 51' Ipswich 1-0 Burnley! Chopra gives Ipswich a deserved lead after Martin's effort from a one-on-one is well saved by Grant. It's a simple finish for the striker as the loose ball came to him. A fifth consecutive home win could be on the cards for Ipswich
