IPSWICH Town slipped up in their promotion chase after being held to a draw by Sheffield United at Portman Road.

Alan Lee equalised eight minutes after the break when he bent over backwards to get enough of a Jon Walters cross to loop a header past Paddy Kenny.

United went ahead when Michael Tonge was allowed to skip through the Town defence after a mistake by Dan Harding and his cross was met at the far past by James Beattie.

Tonge also hit the crossbar with a wicked 25-yard effort but clear-cut chances at both ends were at a premium.
