Rumoured Ipswich Town target John Marquis has turned down a new, improved contract at League One side, Doncaster Rovers.

The former Millwall striker (25) scored 26 goals for the South Yorkshire club last season, as Darren Ferguson’s side won promotion back to the third tier of English football.

Ferguson insists neither Ipswich, or Wigan – also thought to be keen – have been in touch over Marquis, who is in the final year of his contract at the Keepmoat Stadium.

Marquis said late last season that he wanted to extend his contract with the club. “I’ve got a year left on my contract and it would be nice to sit down and sort a new one out,” Marquis said in April. “There’s no reason why I would want to go anywhere else, my football has come on so much.”

The Lewisham-born striker startd out at Millwall, netting six goals in 65 games for the Lions, and has also had various loan spells at clubs such as Portsmouth, Torquay, Gillingham and Leyton Orient.

Ipswich boss Mick McCarthy has already signed Rangers striker Joe Garner, but is thought to be in the hunt for another one, with Kieffer Moore being linked with a loan move away from the club.

Ipswich Town legend Russell Osman says the club’s players need to start taking responsibility after a worrying slump in form continued with a 1-0 home defeat to rivals Norwich City on Sunday.

Ipswich Town Ladies 1

C&K Basildon 0

Ipswich Town Ladies are through to the second round of the Premier League Cup after beating Southern Premier Division side C&K Basildon Ladies 1-0 at Felixstowe & Walton United’s Goldstar Ground.

The East Anglian derby misery goes on following yesterday’s 1-0 home defeat to Norwich City – that’s nine games without a win against the Canaries in almost nine years. More pertinently, that’s seven defeats in nine across all competitions for the Blues.

Ipswich Town striker David McGoldrick admits he faces ‘a big decision’ as he enters the final few months of his contract.

The mood music has changed and things could unravel very quickly for Ipswich Town.

Can anyone explain what happened in the second half? I can understand the lack of quality, but where did the passion go? Northstander Terry Hunt gives his thoughts on Ipswich Town’s 1-0 loss to Norwich City.

Ipswich Town’s misery in the East Anglian derby continued with a 1-0 defeat to Norwich City at Portman Road this lunchtime. STUART WATSON analyses the match.

Ipswich Town midfielder Cole Skuse said he and his team-mates were left ‘racking their brains’ after Norwich took all three points in the East Anglian derby today.

Ipswich Town manager Mick McCarthy declared himself pleased with his side’s performance, but bitterly disappointed with the result following today’s 1-0 home defeat to rivals Norwich City at Portman Road.
