John McGreal's Ipswich Town were beaten 2-0 by Charlton Athletic this evening.

McGreal has stepped in as caretaker boss following the sacking of Paul Cook, taking charge at a time when Town sit 11th in the League One table.

The former Town defender, who is assisted by Kieron Dyer and Rene Gilmartin, has had one training session with his players ahead of tonight's game, which kicks off at 7.45pm.

He said: "Our players are professionals and they are playing for Ipswich Town so there is a pressure on them and they might feel that. They need to release the shackles, though, and give it a right go. It's the least our supporters demand and deserve - you have to work hard for the badge."
