IPSWICH Town fans protested against manager Jim Magilton last night.

About 40 fans with banners gathered outside Portman Road ahead of Town's game with Nottingham Forest.

Robert Boon, 35, was one of the organisers of the protest. He said: “We have an owner who has put millions into the club but we have ended up being a mediocre team. It is a joke and we are nowhere near where we should be.”

Daryn Woods, 42, agreed that it was time for Magilton to go and said even his two step-children refused to go to Town games because they were bored. “It is time for change. I have nothing against Magilton, but it is the style of play. There is no entertainment.”

A number of Town fans also confronted the protestors and sang songs in support of Magilton.

Harald Haagemsen had travelled from Norway for the game and said: “I do not agree with the protest. It is a little bit too early and I want to wait and see until the end of the season. Maybe we will still reach the play-offs.”

The scenes were not repeated after the match, which Town won 2-1.
