Ipswich Town striker Daryl Murphy picked up two more awards at last night’s End of Season Dinner.

The 32-year-old – who is the Championship’s leading scorer with 25 goals – was named Players’ Player of the Year, Corporate Customers and Sponsors and Boxholders’ Player of the Year at Milsoms, Kesgrave Hall.

The Irishman has already been named the Supporters’, Junior Blues’ and Platinum Season Ticket Holders’ Player of the Year. He was second in the Sky Bet Championship Player of the Year standings (behind Middlesbrough’s Patrick Bamford) and was selected in the PFA Championship Team of the Year.

Teddy Bishop picked up the Young Player of the Year award last night, while Cole Skuse claimed two awards. The latter picked up the John Kerridge Memorial Trophy for most improved player, selected by manager Mick McCarthy, and also received ‘Goal of the Season’ after sensationally ending his three-year goal drought in the recent 3-1 home win over Cardiff.

Meanwhile, Rotherham secured their Championship safety with a 2-1 home win over Reading last night, consigning both Millwall and Wigan to relegation alongside Blackpool.

It was not a result that has done Ipswich any favours heading into the final weekend of the regular season. The Blues need a point at Blackburn to secure a play-off place, but know that both Brentford and Wolves are ready to pounce should they and/or Derby slip up.

Brentford are at home to Wigan and Wolves host Millwall. Both teams are three points behind the Blues, with Brentford’s goal difference three worse and Wolves’ inferior by seven.
