Comments:

League position: 7th Unused substitutes: Lewis Price, Drissa Diallo and Alun Armstrong Dean Bowditch made Ipswich Town history by becoming their youngest-ever hat-trick scorer at the age of 17 years 279 days. Town's previous record-holder was Colin Viljoen, who was 18 years 277 days when he netted three against Portsmouth in March 1967. With Darren Bent also scoring three goals in Ipswich's previous game against Walsall, this was also the first back-to-back hat-tricks for Town since David Johnson followed Alex Mathie in January 1998. Mathie hit three during a 5-0 win against Norwich City, before Johnson hit a triple in a 5-2 win at home to Oxford United three days later.
