IPSWICH Town found their shooting boots to edge an eventful Championship derby at Portman Road this afternoon.
Colchester United were very much in the hunt for much of the game, stroking the ball around the pitch like a promotion-chasing side.
David Wright was sent off in stoppage time for handling the ball before the impressive Chris Iwelumo scored from the penalty spot.
