Ipswich Town 2 Derby County 0

NICKY Forster and Darren Currie gave Ipswich Town their first win in nine games as they put on a super second half show in an emotional final home game of the season.

But the day belonged to skipper Jim Magilton who was given a standing ovation before and after the game during a lap of honour.

Derby dominated in the first half and missed a raft of chances with Morten Bisgaard and Tommy Smith the main culprits, while Shane Supple made some good saves.

Magilton was replaced at half-time and the Blues came out to ram the woeful missed chances down Derby's throats by scoring a minute after the break.
