IPSWICH Town have scored more than six goals in a league game on only three occasions.

When Jon Walters scored the sixth with 18 minutes still to go on Saturday, the thoughts of the more statistically-minded fans turned to the chances of beating the club's record league score, which stands at 7-0. If Billy Clarke had brought his shooting boots along, Town would have at least equalled the record!

For the record, here are Town's biggest league wins:

7-0 v Portsmouth, Division Two, November 7 1964

7-0 v Southampton, Division One, February 2 1974

7-0 v WBA, Division One, November 6 1976
