Match Preview

Bowyer misses out against Hammers Lee Bowyer will miss Ipswich's clash with his former club West Ham due to a groin injury. The 34-year-old midfielder, who scored the only goal of the game against the Hammers when the clubs met earlier in the season, missed the Tractor Boys' last fixture against Leeds with the same problem. Goalkeeper Alex McCarthy is another absentee for manager Paul Jewell as he serves a one-match suspension after being sent off in the 3-1 defeat to the Whites. Arran Lee-Barrett featured before McCarthy joined on a loan deal from Reading so should start. Jewell could hand a debut to midfielder Ryan Stevenson after he signed from Hearts. Stevenson may not be the only new recruit in Jewell's squad as the Town boss revealed he had made bids for five players on Friday, including one for Falkirk defender Murray Wallace which has been accepted. Matt Taylor is set to return to the West Ham squad. Taylor has missed the last eight matches with a calf injury but has had two outings for the reserves to prove his fitness. However, fellow midfielder Papa Bouba Diop looks set to miss out with the hamstring injury he suffered against Nottingham Forest last time out so Arsenal loanee Henri Lansbury is likely step into the centre. In defence, Joey O'Brien has shaken off a knock, Guy Demel is fit after a thigh problem and American centre-half George John is pushing to be included in the squad for the first time since he joined on loan from FC Dallas a fortnight ago.

Match Report

Leaders stunned by Town Ipswich made a mockery of their lowly position in the npower Championship as they put leaders West Ham to the sword 5-1 at Portman Road. The league's tightest defence met its weakest but it was Town who celebrated their first win in eight matches in all competitions to boost their battle for survival. The home side led inside three minutes through Michael Chopra before Carlton Cole hit a post for the visitors moments later. A crazy end to the first half saw three goals in the final two minutes plus stoppage time, with Daryl Murphy doubling Town's advantage with a header but Jack Collison halving the deficit within seconds. Ipswich were then awarded a penalty which Lee Martin converted, and Jay Emmanuel-Thomas added a brace after the break as the Hammers saw their three-game winning run in the league come to an end. But they stay top after second-placed Southampton were held to a 1-1 draw at home by Cardiff. Town made a flying start as they took the lead after three minutes. Emmanuel-Thomas held off the challenge of a couple of defenders before teeing up Chopra for his first goal in eight games. The Hammers came agonisingly close to an equaliser in the sixth minute but Cole's header from George McCartney's delivery hit a post and bounced into the arms of goalkeeper Arran Lee-Barrett. Moments later, Henri Lansbury, who enjoyed a successful loan spell at Town's East Anglia rivals Norwich, fired a shot wide from 20 yards. The game was swinging from end to end and Chopra came close to a second in the 35th minute but his close-range header was easy for goalkeeper Robert Green. West Ham responded and James Tomkins headed a Mark Noble corner over before they fell further behind a minute before the break. Tommy Smith flicked on a corner and Murphy was on hand to convert from close range - his first goal since November. But the Hammers produced an immediate response as Collison headed in a Noble free-kick, although amazingly Ipswich went straight up the other end and restored their two-goal cushion. George McCartney was booked for a foul on Chopra and Martin sent Green the wrong way from the spot. An excellent save from Green prevented Emmanuel-Thomas from notching a fourth for Town 10 minutes into the second half. But there was nothing Green could do when Emmanuel-Thomas left fly from 30 yards in the 64th minute to make it 4-1. Winston Reid and Lansbury were denied by Lee-Barrett as West Ham attempted to get back into the game Substitute Sam Baldock shot wide when he should have scored and Kevin Nolan was next to be foiled by Lee-Barrett as West Ham continued to fight back. But Emmanuel-Thomas added a fifth in injury time to cap a miserable night for the Hammers.
