Ipswich   1 - 3   Crystal Palace

Crystal Palace put their controversial weekend defeat by Bristol City behind them with an impressive win at Ipswich.

Darren Ambrose put Palace ahead with a scuffed shot from Alan Lee's cross and added a superb second after cutting inside and firing into the top corner.

Ipswich hit back when Owen Garvan's cross was headed home by Alex Bruce.

But Palace came forward again and Bruce blocked Jose Fonte's effort on the goal-line before Neil Danns met an Ambrose cross to make sure of victory.

The victory was the ideal tonic for Palace after the loss to Bristol City when they scored but were not awarded the goal.


Crystal Palace boss Neil Warnock:
"It was nice to get the disappointment and injustice of the weekend out of the way - not just by winning but playing as we did.

"We showed a great attitude, were solid at the back and inventive in midfield.

"I couldn't ask for more, especially at such a difficult place as Ipswich."

Ipswich boss Roy Keane:

"In defence of the players, I take full responsibility.

"There were new players out there for us, young players and a new partnership up front.

"I know as well as anyone that sometimes these things don't happen straight away in football. It takes time to click."
