Ipswich   0 - 3   Sheff Utd

Ipswich 0-3 Sheff Utd

Ipswich 0-3 Sheff Utd

Mark Yeates scored one goal and created another two as Sheffield United got their first away win since 5 December with victory over Ipswich.

Owen Garvan headed against a post for Ipswich before Yeates slotted the opener from the edge of the box.

Soon after half-time Ched Evans fired in from a Yeates cross before the hosts lost Tom Eastman to a second booking for a foul on Matthew Lowton.

And it was three when Yeates crossed for Richard Cresswell to head home.


Ipswich manager Roy Keane:

"My work starts now. Most definitely. There's no switching off. I don't even like talking about summer holidays. We don't deserve a holiday.

"Of course you need to switch off physically and mentally, but this idea of people off gallivanting for eight or nine weeks isn't going to happen.

"I'll be bringing in characters. Forget stats, ages, the country they're from or what size boot they wear. It's all about characters."

Sheffield United manager Kevin Blackwell:

"We always feel we're a club that should be going for promotion, but at the end of last season we found ourselves with 15 players out of contract.

"It left us with a big hole to fill and we'd already missed six weeks of the transfer window. We've been trying to catch up ever since.

"We couldn't get the type of player we were looking for and we had to rely on loans.

"That leads to instability and a lack of consistency but to finish eighth is still a terrific achievement for the players.

"It'll be good to get a solid squad together and start again from scratch.

"We've had a colossal number of injuries and 24 debuts.

"That's completely different to having a squad of players you know and when situations are controlling you, rather than you controlling them, it makes it very hard."
