LUFC View from the opposition manager

LUFC View from the opposition manager

Opposition manager Mick McCarthy felt the Tom Lees sending off changed the course of the game at Portman Road.

Leeds had missed a host of chances when Lees received his marching orders for a clumsy challenge on Jay Tabb, which saw him receive a straight red card and McCarthy said his side could have easily have been two or three behind before the incident that changed the game. "I thought it at the time and now I have seen it on video, my view hasn`t changed. It was a red card and I don`t see any arguments," McCarthy told the Ipswich official website.

"It changed the game, no doubt about that. They were better than us for the first 30 minutes and could have been two or three up."

Having ridden their luck before the incident, Ipswich never looked back after David McGoldrick gave them the lead on the stroke of half time.

McGoldrick, who signed from Nottingham Forest in January, had netted 17 times in 25 appearances in the first half of the season whilst on loan at Coventry City and Ipswich were quick to make a loan move for the striker at the start of the January transfer window.

The striker, who has spent much of his career out on loan, had struggled to bring his Coventry form to Portman Road having netted just twice in twelve appearances prior to the Leeds game but he doubled his Ipswich account with his second goal of the afternoon early in the second half.

Jay Emmanuel-Thomas added a third halfway through the second half to make it five wins from their last six home games and give Ipswich some breathing space at the bottom of the championship.

Whilst Neil Warnock refuses to write of a play-off place he might now need to be looking over his shoulder as Leeds are a point closer to the relegation zone than the play-offs.
