Sheff Wed   0 - 1   Ipswich

Sheffield Wednesday 0-1 Ipswich

Sheffield Wednesday 0-1 Ipswich

Carlos Edwards grabbed the only goal as Ipswich gave the perfect response to the midweek defeat against Peterborough that so angered manager Roy Keane.

Keane had questioned his side's character but they were ahead inside 15 minutes when Edwards cut in from the right and rifled home a fine shot.

Marcus Tudgay almost levelled for the Owls but his shot crashed off the bar.

At the other end, Damien Delaney headed against the bar from an Edwards cross and the latter also shot narrowly wide.


Sheffield Wednesday boss Alan Irvine:

"We are very disappointed. It was a big game for us and there is no hiding from that.

"I have said all along that we need six wins and I am more worried about the fact that that is another game gone and we still need six wins.

"I am confident the players have enough ability to stay in this division and I'm confident we'll do the organisational side of it and get prepared for games.

"The big thing that I am really still trying to find out about is the character of the players and whether they have the mental strengths to do it."

Ipswich manager Roy Keane on Carlos Edwards:

"He was fresh and hungry and he has goals in his locker - I am surprised he has not scored more for us. As soon as he hit it, it had goal written all over that.

"The result was a good reaction from Tuesday night (the 3-1 defeat at Peterborough). The game should have been dead and buried and we put ourselves under pressure by missing chances.

"What you've seen today has been the problem all season. We haven't been killing the game off with the second and third goals.

"But we defended well and that was enough to win the game."
