Jim Magilton was the happier of the two managers after Ipswich and Bristol City showed why they have come up short in the battle for play-off places.

An injury-time penalty from Giovani dos Santos earned Ipswich a point and Magilton managed to put a positive spin on a scrappy encounter.

"I thought we were up for it from the start and fully deserved our point," he said.

"After a couple of defeats it was important we came away with something. Our problems have been at home this season and it was another good away performance.

"Giovani showed great coolness with the penalty and certainly made a difference for us when he came on.

"We played some good football and created a number of chances so overall I'm very happy."

City had taken a 48th-minute lead when midfielder Marvin Elliott ran onto a Michael McIndoe flick and slid the ball past Richard Wright with the outside of his right foot.
