GOAL hero Gavin Williams has called on Ipswich to build on beating Championship leaders Birmingam City and aim for the play-offs.

Although hampered by a groin problem Williams climbed off the bench to score a last-minute winner against City and has called on Town to show some consistency.

Williams said: “We have played well against all the top teams so what we need to do now is get a run together. On our day we are as good as any team and we should be aiming for the play-offs.”

Magilton said: “Simon wants to go back to Charlton because he wants to help them get out of trouble. With Jon it is a case of speaking with Crystal Palace.”

Magilton also confirmed that Ian Miller will be staying with cash-strapped Boston United on loan.
