AFTER their 2-0 victory over Southampton, Ipswich Town are now only two home wins away from equalling the club's all-time winning run in the league at Portman Road.

That stands at 14, achieved more than 50 years ago, in the 1956-1957 season, when the team were plying their trade in the Third Division (South).
