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.

Town keeper Ian Alexander had come sprinting off his line to clear an Alan Mahon through ball, but his clearance hit Gray and looped over his head into the net.
Ipswich substitute Pablo Counago, who made way for Clarke in the starting XI, then had a late goal ruled out for offside.

The draw ended a run of three straight away defeats in the Championship for Jim Magilton's side.
Elsewhere, the pressure continued to grow on Norwich City manager Peter Grant, whose side could only manage a goalless draw at home to Scunthorpe United.
