Ipswich   3 - 1   Blackpool

Ipswich 3-1 Blackpool

Ipswich 3-1 Blackpool

Ipswich deservedly defeated high-flying Blackpool to record their third win of the Championship season and move out of the bottom three.

Jon Stead scored with a powerful left-footed strike in the first minute.

Jonathan Walters hit the post before Jack Colback collected a pass from Stead to double the lead.

Evatt's header put Blackpool back in the game but McAuley then nodded home for Ipswich, while David Vaughan saw red after a second caution.

Ian Holloway's Blackpool have had a superb season so far but were very much second best at Portman Road.

Gary Taylor-Fletcher saw an effort blocked by the excellent McAuley when the visiting team trailed 1-0 - but Ipswich also created a host of other chances.

Stead drew a good save from the recalled Matthew Gilks, Walters lost his footing at the crucial moment with the goal gaping and Jaime Peters shot wide.


Ipswich manager Roy Keane told BBC Radio Suffolk:

"When you look at it, we had some great chances to win the game a lot more easier. But we didn't, we won the game and we are pleased.

"We played the game out well, we kept our shape and hit them on the break and really should have scored another two or three goals."

Blackpool manager Ian Holloway:
"We got what we deserved and I got what I deserved - nothing.

"I probably tinkered with the team a bit too much and we didn't have our chess pieces in the right places.

"Full credit to Ipswich. They capitalised on that, but I didn't recognise it as the kind of performance we've been giving."
