Sheffield United were back in action this weekend as we made the trip to Portman Road to face Ipswich Town.
The game was set to be an interesting affair as we have somewhat stalled of late under manager Chris Wilder and although we continue to sit in the Play-Off spots we have lost two of the last three, yet despite four defeats on the spin, Ipswich picked up a victory in their last match.
It was the hosts who made an impression in the first half as they took the lead with seven minutes remaining in the first period, but Billy Sharp did level the scores up within two minutes of the halftime restart.

Despite dominating chances and possession we just couldn’t find that second goal to take the win but if you are looking for small positives, fighting back and chance creation gives that – we just needed to be far more clinical.
Speaking to the BBC at the fulltime whistle
“I thought we dominated the game from start to finish. We had a dodgy five, six minutes after they scored but apart from that I thought that we were pretty much in control really. Thankfully Billy (Sharp) was on the end of a great ball to get us back in the game at one all. He keeps going. He gets into those areas where he can score. It was a great goal and a great cross. It’s a right tough league and now is the challenge to stay up there.”
