Ipswich   2 - 0   Millwall

Ipswich 2-0 Millwall

Ipswich 2-0 Millwall

Ipswich secured a comfortable win over fellow mid-table opponents Millwall.

Jason Scotland hit an early goal after Tamas Priskin and Carlos Edwards had exchanged passes down the right wing.

Priskin continued to pose problems and won his side a penalty when he was fouled by Danny Shittu, Grant Leadbitter scoring from the spot.

Millwall had chances, first when Paul Robinson's header from Nadjim Abdou's cross looped over and then when Danny Schofield failed to keep his shot down.

They also enjoyed a lively opening, Theo Robinson dragging a 25-yard shot wide with just seven seconds gone as the visitors threatened straight from the kick-off.

But either side of that - and the opportunities for Paul Robinson and Schofield either side of half-time - the game was generally well controlled by the hosts.

Among other Ipswich chances, Damien Delaney steered a header wide from Leadbitter's outswinging corner six minutes before half-time, before a Tommy Smith headed effort was blocked by James Henry.

When Millwall pressed for an equaliser, Ipswich were also effective on the counter-attack: they launched a swift move following a wayward Henry corner, Jack Colback eventually shooting wide from just inside the penalty area.

When Ipswich's second goal went in, Kenny Jackett immediately sent on Darren Carter and John Marquis with just over half an hour to go.

For a while, Ipswich continued to carve out the better chances, until Shittu saw his weak 12-yard header comfortably dealt with by Marton Fulop.

Millwall continued to surge forward in the final 15 minutes as play became stretched - but Ipswich defended well.
