It was a dramatic afternoon at Portman Road as Ipswich Town snatched a late victory over Fleetwood Town.

Bersant Celina struck late to send a 20,000-strong crowd, including Town co-owner Brett Johnson, wild and move the Blues up to 10th in the League One table.

Things had fallen a little flat, after Conor Chaplin's thumping opener had been cancelled out by Callum Morton's equaliser, before Celina struck to secure the points.

Photographer Ray Lawrence was on hand to capture the best of the action, both on the pitch and in the stands.
