IPSWICH Town were held to a goalless draw for the first time in 34 games as their proud run of home wins ended against Barnsley.

The Blues have still gone 13 matches without defeat at home but could not crack a resolute Tykes side.

The teams cancelled each other out in the first half with Neil Alexander the slightly busier of the two keepers. He pushed a Grant McCann effort over the bar while his opposite number dealt comfortably with shots from Pablo Counago and Tommy Miller.

Alan Lee limped off in the first half and was replaced by the lively Danny Haynes.
