Blues in Bore Draw

Ipswich Town
0 - 0
Blackpool

Portman Road

Attendance: 16,010

Referee:

Two pitiful teams combined to produce a dull 0-0 at Portman Road.

McGoldrick had an eight-yard effort blocked after being set up by Stephen Hunt.

Town`s top scorer then headed a perfect Luke Chambers cross wide of the goal.

Loach made a good save from Faris Haroun and Chambers made an outstanding clearance with Steven Davies about to knock in the rebound.

That was about it in a pretty dull first half.

Early in the second half Murphy flashed a shot wide and Hunt volley another over the bar.

The game was littered by fouls and it became a little fractious with the referee losing patience and booking three Blackpool players for a series of offences.

It didn`t do Ipswich much good as they pressed without conviction and never really tested Matt Gilkes. Town claimed a penalty when Kirk Broadfoot appeared to handle but the ref was not interested.

The Tangerines threatened late on but Loach smothered a second effort by Haroun. Substitute David Goodwillie lashed a poor attempt over the bar, which pretty much summed up a dour game with little quality.
