Scunthorpe v Ipswich

Scunthorpe 1-1 Ipswich

Scunthorpe   1 - 1   Ipswich

Ipswich recovered from a poor first half to extend their unbeaten away league record by drawing at Scunthorpe.

David Mirfin's looping first-half header put Scunthorpe ahead but Jaime Peters levelled after the restart.

This inspired the visitors and they had several chances to go ahead with Darren O'Dea's shot against the bar the best.

Jonathan Forte had a late chance for Scunthorpe but a combination of Gareth McAuley's challenge and Marton Fulop's save denied him a goal.

Scunthorpe dominated possession in the opening stages, with Martyn Woolford and Rob Jones having chances , before Forte wasted the first decent chance of the game, heading Eddie Nolan's cross over the bar from eight yards out.

Jones had another opportunity when he headed Josh Wright's corner wide, but Scunthorpe earned their reward for their early pressure on the half-hour mark when Sam Togwell put the ball back in the box after a corner was cleared, and Mirfin was left unmarked to head his side in front.

Ipswich manager Roy Keane made instant changes, taking off Connor Wickham for Luke Hyam, and the reshuffle seemed to work as the visitors got more into the match.

Jason Scotland should have done better when he failed to connect with Carlos Edwards' cross, and Edwards' regular long throws also put Scunthorpe on the back foot.

Perters replaced Andros Townsend at half-time and within 12 minutes he had put Ipswich back on level terms, as Cliff Byrne's attempted interception ricocheted off Peters, leaving him with a simple finish.

Scunthorpe keeper Joe Murphy then made a fine save from Edwards and Scotland wasted another great chance to score when Byrne's superbly-timed tackle denied him a tap-in finish.

One of Edwards's trademark long throws set up O'Dea for a shot against the bar with Murphy well beaten, and substitute Tamas Priskin wasted a great chance when he headed over from close range.

But it was not just one-way traffic, with Scunthorpe going close themselves towards the end.

First Forte was kept out by the combined efforts of McAuley and Fulop, and then with four minutes remaining the same player wasted a great chance, beating two defenders before producing a disappointing shot wide of the post.
