Ibrahima Sonko suspended for Nottingham Forest match
DISAPPOINTED Town defender Ibrahima Sonko believes his side deserved a point after his unhappy homecoming at the Madejski Stadium.
Sonko was given a rapturous applause by the home fans who then went home celebrating a 1-0 Reading win.
A disciplined and resolute Ipswich performance, which saw them carve out the better chances, did not reap its reward after Alex Pearce’s second half header.
Sonko, who was part of the Reading side that won the Championship in 2006 alongside current Town defender Ivar Ingimarsson, said: “I thought we did enough to draw – that would have been a fair result.
“Alex Pearce did well to score against us and take the points from us.”

And of his return to the Madejski, Sonko added: “It was always going to be nice going back. We both love each other and it was nice to come back home.”
Town will hope to bounce back straight away in Monday’s match against struggling Nottingham Forest at Portman Road (3pm ko).
