Town remain rock bottom

Published Add your comment

Roy Keane's Ipswich suffered another bitter blow as they let a lead slip, this time in the 90th minute to end up with only a point from a 1-1 draw at home to Watford.

Town remain bottom of the pile after Nathan Ellington's equaliser in the fourth minute of second-half stoppage-time for the Hornets, after Gareth McAuley's fifth-minute effort had seemed destined to ease some of the pressure on Keane.

Bristol City are still ninth - albeit only three points off the top - after their 3-1 win at home to Plymouth, all the goals coming in a six-minute second-half spell.

Danny Haynes (73), Jamie McCombe (76) and Nicky Maynard (79) scored for City - and Jamie Mackie (75) for the Pilgrims.

QPR were 4-1 winners at home to struggling Reading in a match which finished with both teams down to 10 men.

Rangers' Akos Buzsaky scored the first goal from a free-kick just before the half-hour, seconds after Ben Wilson had been sent off for a second booking when he tried to take the shot too quickly.

Jay Simpson (39), Rowan Vine (71) and Patrick Agyemang (83) completed the hosts' tally - Brian Howard (86) with the Royals' consolation after their defender Ivar Ingimarsson had been sent off for a second yellow card.

Goals from Billy Sharp (17), Dean Shiels (21) and Jason Shackell (85) gave Doncaster a 3-1 success at home to Peterborough. Aaron McLean netted a 32nd-minute goal for Posh.

Paul Gallacher (59 and 81) scored both goals in Leicester's 2-0 win at home to Crystal Palace, which kept them in touch with all the other pace-setters.
