Ipswich Town 1-1 Watford

Ipswich Town 1-1 Watford

By the time he next surfaces back into the public eye, Roy Keane's beard will have doubled in length and probably in greyness too. The second-most famous beard in football, after a certain Mr Beckham's latest effort, will no doubt make a re-appearance after Keane's Tractor Boys suffered a mere third injury-time leveller of the season.

Having been pegged back at Bramall Lane in a 3-3 draw and pegged back to lose in the 96th minute at Barnsley, Town were just minutes away again before the man who many never expected to see in a Hornet's shirt, let alone score in one did just that.

That's right, Nathan, 'The Duke', Ellington popped up to snatch a 90th minute leveller for Malky Mackay's Hornet's who continued to show their resilience with a fourth point in as many days after back-to-back loss'.

The Hornet's fell behind early doors, Ulsterman centre back, Gareth McAuley grabbing Ipswich's opener just five minutes in. The former Leicester City and Lincoln centre back nodded home at the far post from a free kick after Watford fluffed their chances to clear their lines.

The Golden Boys were without Saturday's goal hero Tom Cleverley however John Eustace was able to slot straight back into midfield meaning Don Cowie moved back out to the right wing.

Ipswich hit the bar not long after scoring as former Manchester United protegee Lee Martin cracked one against the bar.

And, by all accounts the home side had the best of the game throughout, Watford restricted to half chances from long-throw on's and the like.

However, when your luck is out, it's out, and Keane's men having seen their luck walk out without any sign of a return since August, saw Nathan Ellington of all people popped up to tap home a cross from Danny Graham to grab his first Hornet's goal in over two years.

Sounds like we rode our luck, although it's about time we profited from a late goal and more than about time that Ellington actually scored! Now for a home win on Friday night.....

It has happened to us more than once sheff wed last season for example, more than happy with a point, these are places that can cause us trip up, 51 points will see us safe and if we can be half way to that by start of the new year, we should be fine
