IPSWICH Town hit back from a goal down to gain three hard-earned Championship points against Burnley at Portman Road today.

The Blues hero was striker Alan Lee, who equalised in the 63rd minute and was then brought down by Michael Duff for Matt Richards to win the game with an 82nd minute penalty.

Lee had struck the foot of the post with a first half header, and he was also denied by two good saves by Brian Jensen.

Ipswich perhaps suffered a first half-hangover after their win at Norwich, but with Richard Naylor up front in the second period they fought their way to victory.

Their fans went home happy after such a rip-roaring recovery although the penalty decision looked debatable with Wayne Thomas being sent off for protesting and getting a second yellow card.
