Town star admits it’s a relegation dog fight for Blues
IPSWICH Town are in a relegation fight after losing their eighth game out of their last 10 Championship matches at Millwall on Saturday.
The heartening Carling Cup win over Arsenal soon became a distant memory as Town surrendered three more vital points to drop further down the table – to a precarious 20th position.
The decision to replace Roy Keane with Paul Jewell has all the makings of being a correct one, with the latter being better equipped to stave off a bottom three finish.
Cup runs are all well and good and Ipswich have done magnificently to get within touching distance of a Wembley final, but unless the league form improves dramatically it is going to be a nail-biting second half of the season with Ipswich currently in league free-fall.
“Yes, we’re in a relegation fight – of course we are,” admitted midfielder Carlos Edwards today.

“But with a new manager with perhaps some new persons and different way of playing hopefully this will bring results sooner rather than later.
“I’m normally an optimist and I still feel we can finish in the top half of the table. But we must start winning – and soon.”
