Watford 2 Ipswich Town 0
IPSWICH Town's run of seven Coca-Cola Championship games without defeat - stretching back into last season - came to a shuddering halt at Vicarage Road this afternoon.
They failed to reach any great heights and were well beaten by a side that looks equipped to make a rapid return to the Premier League.
Poor Blues defending accounted for both the Hornets' goals with Darius Henderson netting after five minutes with a shot that went through Neil Alexander's legs.

While they were found lacking at the back on occasions, Ipswich also found it difficult up front failing to serious test Mart Poom in the whole 90 minutes.
