Ipswich   0 - 2   Derby

Ipswich v Derby graphic

Ipswich 0-2 Derby

Derby beat play-off rivals Ipswich at Portman Road for the first time in eight years thanks to two second-half strikes from Kris Commons.

Both sides had chances in a goalless first-half, Connor Wickham coming closest for the home side while Commons was denied by goalkeeper Marton Fulop.

Commons, Derby's leading scorer, broke the deadlock on 58 minutes with a deflected 30-yard free-kick.

And Commons sealed victory 18 minutes later with a shot from close-range.

Derby started the match brightly and midfielder Tomasz Cywka came close early on as he let fly from 25 yards out, but goalkeeper Fulop tipped his effort over the crossbar.

Ipswich responded with Tamas Priskin forcing Rams goalkeeper Frank Fielding into a decent stop with an audacious 30-yard drive before Wickham sent a shot wide from the edge of the area.

Priskin almost netted with a close-range header in the 21st minute but he struggled to get power on the header.

Derby, who went into the game having won six of their last eight matches, hit back with former Ipswich striker Shefki Kuqi scuffing a shot that Fulop pushed away.

606: DEBATE

James Bailey, Commons and Kuqi again tested the Hungarian keeper as the half came to a close but he was finally beaten at the restart when Commons drilled a free-kick into the bottom corner.

The home side almost equalised immediately when the ball fell for Grant Leadbitter inside the area, but his powerful shot was parried by Fielding.

Ipswich substitute Jason Scotland was also denied by Fielding in the 70th minute but the Rams doubled their lead when Dean Moxey cut the ball back for Commons to slot home from eight yards.

The Tractor Boys continued to press as the clock ticked down but defender Tommy Smith was also denied by Rams keeper Fielding.

The visitors remain fourth in the table, while Ipswich slip down to seventh place.
