Attendance: 15, 417

Referee:

Nathan Tyson came off the bench to snatch a late winner and increase the pressure on Paul Jewell as Derby County came away from Portman Road with a 2-1 victory over Ipswich Town. Adam Legzdins was in action in the opening stages to deny Lee Martin, Aaron Creswell and Jay Emmanuel-Thomas before DJ Campbell claimed the last touch on an effort that gave them the lead midway through the half. Theo Robinson scored from close range after Stephen Henderson couldn`t hold a Conor Sammon shot to send the sides in level at the break and Michael Jacobs twice came close in the second period. Both sides looked to push on for the win in the closing stages and substitute Tyson turned home a low cross from Sammon to clinch the win in added time.

Michael Jacobs came in for the injured Jeff Hendrick in the only change to the side but it was Ipswich who threatened first when Lee Martin turned Richard Keogh, Adam Legzdins was equal to the shot and James O`Connor did enough to put Andy Drury off when the rebound fell to him. Aaron Creswell was next to threaten but his effort was turned around the post by Legzdins and Jay Emmanuel-Thomas had another effort beaten away by the Derby keeper before DJ Campbell fired the rebound well over. Jacobs was the first to threaten for the visitors when his twentyfive yard freekick was just wide and he then shot straight at Stephen Henderson in the next attack.

Ipswich took the lead on twentyfour minutes when a freekick was only partly cleared, Martin hooked the ball back into the middle and O`Connor slid in on Campbell with the ball spinning away from the challenge and into the net with Campbell claiming the last touch. Emmanuel-Thomas had another effort blocked by Legzdins before Martin hit the side netting with an effort from thirty yards. Derby found an equaliser on fourty minutes when Henderson failed to hold an angled drive from Sammon and Theo Robinson forced the ball home from close range.

Richie Wellens had the first opportunity of the second period but he swept a shot over the top from Nigel Reo-Coker`s pass. Derby settled into the game and Jacobs twice came in from the left wing and went close being denied by Henderson and then firing wide of the far post with a rasping effort. Sammon then looked set to pounce on a loose ball after a John Brayford cross but Henderson reacted first to grab it. Coutts fired narrowly over as The Rams looked for the win and they snatched the three points in the dieing minutes. Substitute Nathan Tyson reacted first to turn in a low cross from Sammon after exchanging passes with Craig Bryson and boos came down from the stands as the final whistle blew.
