Below Par Blues Held By Tykes

Ipswich Town
1 - 1
Barnsley

Portman Road

Janaury 19

Attendance: 15,513

Referee:

Only the inability of Marlon Harewood to hit a barn door with a banjo prevented Ipswich losing to relegation-threatened barnsley.
Harewood, who while on loan at Town 12 years ago, missed an absolute sitter in front of the Churchmans, was equally inept once more as he hit a post, knocked acouple of other great chances wide and had a shot saved by Scott Loach when clean through.
At the other end, luke Steele made a superb early save from Carlos Edwards and tipped a david McGoldrick header onto the crossbar.
Barnsley were made to pay for their missed opportunities when Luke Chambers, who had earlier fired over the bar from six yards out, swivelled and scored after an Aaron Cresswell free kick fell kindly to him.
But Barnsley got the equaliser they deserved a minute from nornal time when 19-year-old Danny Rose, tipped to be the new Jordan Rhodes, headed in at the near post from a Tom Kennedy corner.
