Sharp hails ‘unbelievable’ Town fans

BILLY Sharp has paid tribute to Ipswich fans who applauded his goal against the Blues this afternoon.

Despite the Doncaster Rovers striker scoring in the first half to make it 2-0, supporters inside Portman Road applauded in a poignant tribute to Sharp, whose newborn baby tragically passed away last Saturday.

The striker, who turned and applauded the Sir Bobby Robson Stand following his goal in this afternoon’s 3-2 win, tweeted after the game: “Will never forget that moment today at portman road,ipswich town fans unbelievable,never seen anything like it. #special.”
