IPSWICH Town failed to register their first away win of the season at Burnley tonight, losing a two-goal lead to draw 2-2.

Headed goals from French midfielder Sylvain Legwinski and striker Alan Lee gave Town a perfect start within the first 10 minutes at Turf Moor.

Legwinski converted from an Owen Garvan corner while Lee nodded home a cross from strike partner Billy Clarke.

But Burnley's Kyle Lafferty immediately reduced the deficit, and a freak Andy Gray goal on the hour secured the home side a point.
