Ipswich 0-0 Watford

21 March 2009 05:51
Goalkeeper Scott Loach was the hero for Watford as he pulled off a string of fine saves to earn his side a point.Loach kept out Alan Quinn's thunderous arrowed drive before flicking away Gareth McAuley's point-blank header from the resulting corner.On-loan midfielder Giovani Dos Santos limped off early on for Ipswich but his withdrawal seemed to galvanise Jim Magilton's men.Loach denied David Norris and did well to stop Jon Stead's skidding effort.Ipswich boss Jim Magilton:emp_load.getEmpEmbeddedParams("emp_7957423");"Scott deserved his clean sheets after making some excellent saves. He's a wonderful prospect for the future and he's always willing to learn."He comes in every day with a hunger and determination and he's got all the attributes to be a top goalkeeper."He's a good athlete and gets around the box, but he also makes saves - which is the bottom line."Ipswich: Richard Wright, David Wright (Balkestein 59), McAuley, Campo, Thatcher, Giovani (Haynes 26), Norris, Miller (Garvan 55), Quinn, Stead, Counago.Subs not used: Bialkowski, Lisbie.Booked: Counago, Campo.Watford: Loach, Doyley, DeMerit (Hoyte 50), Mike Williamson, Mariappa, Cork, Cowie (Hoskins 83), Jenkins, McAnuff, Priskin, Smith.Subs not used: Lee, Cauna, Young.Attendance: 21,434Referee: Colin Webster (Tyne & Wear).
