Ipswich   0 - 2   Plymouth

Ipswich v Plymouth

Ipswich 0-2 Plymouth

Plymouth secured a vital win in their bid to escape relegation as Ipswich great and Pilgrims boss Paul Mariner made a winning return to Portman Road.

Bradley Wright-Phillips had twice gone close for the visitors before he steered a header home on 34 minutes.

After the break Daryl Murphy shot straight at Plymouth keeper David Stockdale, who then saved well from Grant Leadbitter's long-range shot.

And with 12 minutes to go substitute Joe Mason tapped in Plymouth's second.


Ipswich boss Roy Keane:

"Had Plymouth opened us up and scored good goals it would be one thing, but we gave two bad ones away.

"There will be the usual over-reaction but we have to remember it was our first home defeat since September.

"We had good opportunities but didn't hit the target. We gave them a helping hand and got punished for our mistakes. We don't score enough goals and are liable to give bad ones away."

Plymouth boss Paul Mariner:
"I thought my players were unbelievable and extremely professional.

"There's a resilience and willingness and these lads really want to get out of this.

"Every game has been a six-pointer for many months but what we've got to build now is confidence."
