Ipswich   3 - 0   Sheff Utd

Ipswich 3-0 Sheff Utd

Ipswich 3-0 Sheff Utd

Ipswich continued their rise up the Championship table with a third straight league win against Sheffield United, who finished with nine men.

Damien Delaney headed home Jimmy Bullard's free-kick to put the hosts ahead, before David Norris converted Delaney's cross to double the lead.

Grant Leadbitter's penalty was saved by Steve Simonsen but a solo goal from Connor Wickham sealed the win.

The sorry Blades then had Rob Kozluk and Liam Williamson sent off late on.

The visitors started brightly without creating any clear-cut chances but Paul Jewell's side took the lead when Delaney headed home his third goal of the season.

The goal was created by the skill of Bullard, whose superb cross field pass to Norris was handled by Shane Lowry. From the resultant free-kick, Bullard floated over another great ball for the unmarked Delaney to nod past Simonsen.

With the Blades failing to trouble goalkeeper Marton Fulop, Ipswich doubled their lead shortly after the break when Delaney whipped over a left-wing cross to the far post, where Norris did well to find the space to send the ball home.

Tamas Priskin then hit the post from 18 yards, before the hosts went even closer to extending their lead when Leadbitter's penalty was turned around the post by Simonsen.

But the home fans did not have to wait long for another goal, as Wickham picked up the ball on the halfway line before beating a handful of defenders and firing home.

United's day went from bad to worse when Kozluk saw red for violent conduct, before Williamson talked himself into a second yellow card.
