Ipswich   3 - 2   Doncaster

Ipswich Town 0-0 Doncaster Rovers

Ipswich Town 3-2 Doncaster Rovers

Paul Jewell led struggling Ipswich to a battling victory on his home debut as the Championship club's new manager.

Billy Sharp pounced early to put Doncaster ahead but David Norris curled in to level just after half-time.

Connor Wickham headed the hosts ahead on 60 minutes but their lead was short-lived when Sharp nodded in an equaliser only a minute later.

And the turnaround was complete when Grant Leadbitter's free-kick found Carlos Edwards who blasted home.

Rovers' lead lasted only three minutes and Ipswich's revival undone the efforts of Sharp.

The opener, his 11th league goal of the season, put Ipswich on the back foot as they had to survive a mini-onslaught before Town striker Wickham missed a host of chances before the break.

Having hit the post a minute earlier, Sharp was grateful to convert a floated cross from James Coppinger on the left wing.

Wickham - fresh from signing a contract that runs until 2013 - found himself in space in the box minutes later, but Neil Sullivan tipped his shot round the right hand post at full stretch to retain the advantage.

The hosts had the best chance before the break, with Lee Martin supplying a pinpoint aerial ball for Tamas Priskin - but his header sailed over the bar.

Three minutes after the interval, home captain Norris curled in a deserved equaliser after Ipswich began stringing confident passes together.

And they took the lead 12 minutes later when Wickham finally made the breakthrough after nodding in a Colin Healy cross from close range.

But Doncaster responded immediately with Coppinger charging up the right wing from the restart to cross for Sharp, who headed low into the net.

Yet after a foul on Priskin by Adam Lockwood, Leadbitter's free-kick from the left gave Edward the chance he needed to restore their lead.

Rovers winger John Oster did threaten a last-minute equaliser with a shot from distance, but Damien Delaney cleared to secure a much-needed three points for the home side.
