In our daily feature, we take a look at what happened on this day in Ipswich Town’s history...and today features the continuation of a long winless run, plus a victory over Newcastle.
We begin today in 2009 when Town remained without a win in their first 12 Championship matches, as Nathan Ellington scored an 94th minute equaliser as the Blues drew 1-1 with Watford at Portman Road.
In 1990, Brian Gayle and Simon Milton scored as the Blues beat Newcastle 2-1 at Portman Road with the visitors ended the game with 10-men, while in 1984, Alan Sunderland and Eric Gates scored as Town beat West Brom 2-0 at Portman Road.
And finally on this day in 1973, the Blues drew 1-1 with Arsenal at Highbury with Mick Lambert scoring Town’s goal to remain six games unbeaten in the league, while in 2007, Sylvain Legwinski scored as Town drew 1-1 with QPR at Loftus Road.
