Ipswich v Crystal Palace: Blues fans have a new hero to cheer after Crystal Palace were swept aside 3-0 at Portman Road last night.
The name of Frank Nouble echoed around the ground as the former Wolves striker notched his first two goals for the club in the Blues victory.
Aaron Cresswell also scored with a stunning strike from 25 yards as Town all but sealed their Championship status. The Blues are five points clear of the drop-zone with three games to play.
Town were not at their most fluent in a scrappy game, and the scoreline flattered them somewhat, but Nouble did not care as he went and collected his man-of-the-match award after the game.
“I am happy with the win and with my individual performance,” said Nouble.

“I have taken my chance and hopefully I can carry it on until the end of the season.
“I was not surprised we won 3-0 as, if (Yannick) Bolasie and (Wilfried) Zaha are not playing well, then the rest of the team do not work for them.”
