IPSWICH Town are now just four points clear of the relegation zone, following this afternoon’s round of Championship matches.

Town’s game at Doncaster Rovers, postponed yesterday morning because of a frozen pitch, was the only casualty of the recent wintry weather.

Although Roy Keane’s remain in 18th spot, despite today’s inactivity, they have seen the gap between themselves and the bottom three cut from six points to four.

And that’s because of lowly Scunthorpe United’s surprise 2-0 win at Burnley, and Middlesbrough’s 3-1 win at bottom club Preston.

Keane was at the lunchtime kick-off to witness league leaders QPR recording a 2-0 win at Coventry City. Town’s next game is at Coventry, on New Year’s Day.
