DEFIANT Jim Magilton hailed goal hero Tommy Miller who has kept Ipswich's slim play-off hopes alive.

Miller equalised for the Blues in the last minute of the three added on to keep Town in seventh place, and three points behind Crystal Palace, after Sylvan Ebanks-Blake put Wolves ahead.

Magilton said: “This keeps us going for another week. We now have huge games against Preston and Hull but I have always said it will go to the wire.”
