QPR vs Ipswich - Additional Reports and Comments

Ipswich 0-0 QPR By Mel Henderson

IPSWICH boss Jim Magilton refused to point an accusing finger at ref Paul Armstrong after seeing his side drop two valuable points.

But it's a fair bet that if the Tractor Boys do manage to win promotion, the Berkshire whistler won't be on the guest list for the celebration party.

Magilton, who is already on an FA charge and facing a touchline ban, said: "I'm not allowed to talk about referees for the next 10 years!" A point from this stalemate actually lifted Ipswich into the top six but Magilton's men were adamant they should have bagged all three.

Macedonian international Velice Sumulikoski was convinced he had broken the deadlock five minutes from the end.

Owen Garvan's corner came off the head of Rangers defender Michael Mancienne and on to the far post.

Sumulikoski stabbed the ball goalwards and was sure it had crossed the line before Matthew Connolly's lastditch block.

To add to the home side's misery, it looked as if Connolly used a hand to scoop the ball out, making it three strong penalty claims rejected by the referee.

Magilton added: "On any other day we get penalties - of course we do - but we have also missed chances.

"It's still a point but we expect to win our home games, so it's two points dropped."
IPSWICH: Bywater 6 - Simpson 5, Bruce 5, De Vos 6, Sito 6 - Williams 5 (Roberts, 78mins), Garvan 6, Sumulikoski 5, Quinn 6 (Rhodes, 84mins) - Lee 6, *HAYNES 7.
