Ipswich Town drew 1-1 at Barnsley, at Oakwell, this afternoon and Yorkshire-based Blues fan Amy Downes has given her views pre- and post-match on ‘Fan Cam’.
Watch the video to see above for her thoughts ahead of kick-off (3pm) and whether she got her score prediction right.
The Blues headed into today’s Championship match unbeaten in seven matches, which they have now extended to eight, but have now drawn the last six. See Amy’s immediate reaction to the result below.
Mick McCarthy’s men started February with positive performances against Reading (2-2, home), Aston Villa (1-0 win away), Brighton (1-1, away) and Leeds (1-1, home), but after a dogged draw at Norwich (1-1) they have dished up two flat home performances against Brentford (1-1) and Wolves (0-0), before today’s 1-1 draw at Oakwell.
McCarthy said in Thursday’s pre-match press conference that he had no intention of walking away from his contract, but reiterated that he wouldn’t want to be in charge at the start of 2017/18 if season ticket sales nose-dived as a result of his fading popularity.
Barnsley have enjoyed a good first season back in the Championship, but the January departures of key trio Sam Winnall, Conor Hourihane and James Bree saw any top-six hopes end. Paul Heckingbottom’s side have won just one of their last eight and currently occupy 11th spot after back-to-back 2-1 away defeats to Derby and QPR.
