MICK’S TROOPS MOVE IT UP ANOTHER GEAR

The Football League Paper - - CHAMPIONSHIP -

IPSWICH heaped more mis­ery on long-suf­fer­ing Leeds with a dev­ast­ing dis­play at Port­man Road.

In strik­ers Daryl Murphy and David McGoldrick, they pos­sess the Cham­pi­onship’s most deadly duo and while they have crept up into the top two, ev­ery club will be tak­ing no­tice of what is go­ing on in Suf­folk.

Murphy es­pe­cially is prov­ing a rev­e­la­tion. He has been born again ever since Mick McCarthy signed him per­ma­nently and handed him the num­ber nine jersey. The Repub­lic of Ire­land in­ter­na­tional looks like he could score ev­ery time he gets the ball.

While Ipswich were ruth­less, Leeds were tooth­less.

They would have wanted to have done their talk­ing on the pitch after the week started with owner Mas­simo Cellino be­ing asked to re­sign from the club.

But after a bright start, they never re­cov­ered from Murphy’s equaliser, ul­ti­mately of­fer­ing noth­ing in a dis­mal sec­ond half dis­play.
