JABO Ibehre has returned to Colchester United, on a permanent deal this time.

The U’s have snapped up the 29-year-old striker from MK Dons until the end of the season, following an initial successful loan spell earlier in the campaign.

Even though he only played for just over two months for the U’s, he remains their leading scorer with four league goals.

Ibehre’s return is a big boost for U’s boss Joe Dunne, who has presided over a terrible run of nine straight defeats, which has seen the Essex club drop into the relegation zone.

He had returned to MK Dons early, due to an abdominal injury, but is now on the comeback trail.

“There was no doubt in me coming back,” insisted Ibehre this afternoon.

“It’s just a case of me getting fit. I’m no good to anyone being injured.

“I’m almost now there, with regards fitness, but I’m ready to go now. I’m ready to play football.”

The U’s next match is scheduled to be at home against Walsall this Saturday.

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, writes editor-in-chief and life-long Ipswich fan Terry Hunt.

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.
