Match Report

Stoke 0-0 Ipswich

Stoke missed the chance to move into the play-off places after being held to a goalless draw by Ipswich.

Mamady Sidibe wasted the home side's best chance when he met Lee Martin's cross but sliced wide from eight yards.

Ipswich were also thankful for two goal-line clearances by Luis Castro Sito from Danny Higginbotham headers.

Gary Roberts was the main threat for the visitors but Jon Walters failed to make proper contact with his late cross and Stoke keeper Steve Simonsen saved.

Stoke boss Tony Pulis:

"We had enough chances and Ipswich came with a plan and did exceptionally well, with five in midfield.

"They kept it tight and it was very difficult for us, but it's changed around for us.

"At the start of the season teams were coming to the Britannia looking to win games and now they're looking not to lose against us."

Ipswich boss Jim Magilton:

"I'm pleased with the result. Stoke are a physical side and are good at home.

"We came with a patched-up back four who I thought were outstanding and, to a man, I thought we were outstanding.

"We worked our socks off and I can't remember ever getting anything here and it's never been a happy hunting ground for me."
