Our Fan Cam video feature has returned following Saturday’s 1-1 draw with Brentford at Portman Road.

This time, Harry Kent gave his prediction before kick-off and his reaction after the final whistle.

Our chief football writer Stuart Watson watched Emyr Huws put the Blues in front after 26 minutes with a smart finish, before Nico Yennaris levelled things up just before the break.

Town are undefeated in six games, but have drawn five of those having led on all five occasions. They moved up a place to 15th in the Championship standings ahead of Tuesday night’s visit of relegation-fighting Wolves.

After the game, Ipswich Town boss Mick McCarthy admitted his side were fortunate to keep their unbeaten run going.

“Listen, let’s clear it up, they were very, very good,” said McCarthy. “We weren’t particularly good with the ball at all. They probably deserved to win it. They were the best team. Why that is I don’t know. Probably because they are a good side.

“We’ve played a lot better in the last five games and probably deserved more points than we’ve actually got. Today we had to scrap and fight and stick at it. If there’s a bright spot or a positive point it’s that we got a point when eight weeks ago I’d have been sat here with a face like thunder and we’d have probably lost that 3-1.”
