Ipswich Town 4 Sheffield Wednesday 1

THE jellybeans clearly worked for the Blues as they romped to a three goal half-time lead before beating the Owls with a fourth in the second half.

Pablo Counago won a first minute penalty, which Alan Lee converted as Town got off to a flyer.

Lee grabbed his second with a 20-yard first time shot after a long ball from Counago and the Spaniard got the goal he deserved on the hour after a low cross from Jon Walters.
