Bristol City   0 - 0   Ipswich

Bristol City 0-0 Ipswich

Bristol City 0-0 Ipswich

Bristol City midfielder Danny Haynes clattered the woodwork twice but Ipswich held on to stretch their unbeaten league run to eight games.

Ipswich had early opportunities when Gareth McAuley headed wide before Jonathan Stead volleyed off target.

Haynes struck the bar with a long-range effort just after the break and then hit a post as City went in search of their first win since late October.

Owen Garvan and Jonathan Walters spurned late chances for Ipswich.


Bristol City boss Gary Johnson on the heroics of goalkeeper Dean Gerken:

"We were too open defensively and thank goodness Dean was in excellent form.

"He spilled a shot early on when it skimmed off the surface, but it didn't affect his confidence and from then on he was in great form.

"Some of our players are a little short on confidence and we need a win to lift things at the moment. We are getting crosses in from wide positions but need better movement in the box and more players getting on the end of them."

Ipswich manager Roy Keane on Pablo Counago's 86th-minute chance:

"I'm hugely frustrated because we had a lot of good chances to win the game and that was the best.

"You have to stick those away. We are making progress as a team and there were a lot of positives in the performance, but we can't afford to let opponents off the hook.

"I'm happy with a lot of things, but the position we are in requires wins and we should have done better than a point today."
