Ipswich Town got their Championship campaign off to an excellent start with a 1-0 victory over Birmingham on Saturday afternoon.

Joe Garner grabbed the only goal of the game, but the contest was marred by a serious injury to youngster Andre Dozzell, just before the break.

Dozzell had been impressive before being stretchered off with a serious-looking knee injury, following an innocious fall.

His replacement, young Flynn Downes, was just as impressive and was one of a number of players to catch the eye in the second period.

Here are some of the best fan tweets from during and after the game.
