Ipswich   0 - 1   Nott'm Forest

Ipswich 0-1 Nottingham Forest

Ipswich 0-1 Nottingham Forest

Nottingham Forest moved up to within touching distance of the play-off places with a narrow win at Ipswich.

Town had come closest to breaking the deadlock but they went behind when defender Damien Delaney skewed into his own net from David McGoldrick's cross.

The hosts pushed for an equaliser but Rory Fallon headed wide and David Norris lobbed over, while Forest's Nathan Tyson headed a late chance wide.

Town's misery was compounded when Grant Leadbitter was sent off in added time.

A seventh defeat in the last nine league games means Roy Keane's Ipswich team continue to plummet towards the drop zone - in marked contrast to Forest who, on a run of one defeat in nine matches, are outside the top six only on goal difference.

Town, however, will feel aggrieved they did not get something from a game they competed well in throughout.

They should have taken the lead with the first real attempt on goal just before the half-hour mark when Troy Brown's header from Leadbitter's cross was excellently tipped over the bar by Forest keeper Lee Camp.

Connor Wickham was a constant thorn in the side of the visitors' defence, but despite increasing pressure as the match wore on, the hosts failed to work Camp often enough.

It would have been more comfortable for Forest had Guy Moussi not shot straight at keeper Marton Fulop after being put through on goal in the first half, while McGoldrick inadvertantly hit the bar when he punted a drop ball back to Ipswich after play had been held up because of an injury to a home player.

Tyson then had a had a great chance to put the game to bed but fluffed his header from six yards from Marcus Tudgay's header.

Ipswich's disappointing afternoon was completed in injury time when Leadbitter lost control of the ball, over-stretched and clattered into Paul Anderson and was shown red as a result.
