Colchester United boss, Tony Humes, praised his side for their resilience after today’s 2-2 draw at high-flying Swindon Town.

Michael Smith, the former U’s loanee striker, scored a brace of goals in the 28th and 48th minutes.

But Rhys Healey equalised the first in the 47th minute, and Gavin Massey ensured a point with the second equaliser on 52 minutes.

It stretched the U’s unbeaten run to four league games, with eight points gained out of a possible last 12.

“We are good entertainment value, but we’re not good for the nerves!” admitted Humes.

“But what a game of football! I thought it was a proper game.

“We stuck together well, and our plans worked well apart from a couple of lapses in concentration.

“Either side could have won it, but I thought we had a few more of the best chances late on to nick it.

“We took the game more to Swindon in the second half, although they also came at us more, which made it more open.

“It was another great finish from Rhys (Healey). He’s a real goalscorer, and he had two or three chances today,” added Humes.

Suffolk Constabulary’s court battle with Ipswich Town over the cost of policing on matchdays has cost the force nearly £200,000 in legal fees, it has emerged.

It’s been one of Ipswich Town’s worst seasons for 60 years, and relegation to League One remains a threat. Supporters are unhappy with the style of play, a lack of investment, and season ticket prices going up. But, with two crucial home games looming, TERRY HUNT says it’s more important than ever to get behind the team.

With Ipswich Town’s 60-year stay in the top two divisions under threat, we look at how similar clubs have dealt with such a drop.

Ipswich Town’s crunch home double header is almost here – so how are you feeling?

Ipswich Town have released their season ticket video for 2017/18 today - and you can watch it here.

Christophe Berra was an unused substitute as Scotland secured a vital 1-0 victory over Slovenia in their Group F qualifier against Slovenia, at Hampden Park.

It’s been a relief somewhat to not have to worry about the thought of an Ipswich game over the weekend and for someone that really dislikes a blank weekend because on an international break, it’s an indication of how bad things are right now, writes Karl Fuller.

It’s been a dismal season for Ipswich Town fans and it could yet get worse.

Ipswich may have broken out of their run of straight draws – but a 3-1 defeat isn’t really much to shout about.
