Match Report

Ipswich Town 1 Cardiff City 2

Under-fire Ipswich manager Paul Jewell insists he retains the “full support” of owner Marcus Evans, despite his team sitting second bottom of the Championship and without a win in eight games.

Heidar Helguson’s second-half double saw Cardiff recover from DJ Campbell’s controversial opening goal to heap more pressure on Jewell.

Boos rang round Portman Road following the result, while chants of “you don’t know what you’re doing” were directed at the manager from the Ipswich supporters, who have been deprived of a home league win since March 31. But Jewell claims Evans is continuing to back him in the face of that criticism.

“I’ve had 15 or 20 minutes with Marcus and he thinks we’ve played well and he knows what’s required. I’ve got his full support and I appreciate that,” he said.

Ipswich had led in first-half added time when Campbell, who joined on loan from QPR on Friday, used his hands to turn Lee Martin’s cross into the net.

Cardiff manager Malky Mackay described it as “a horrendous error” from the officials to allow the goal. But the Bluebirds were not to be denied, as Helguson capitalised on a pair of errors from Ipswich keeper Scott Loach.

First, Loach spilt Craig Conway’s cross straight into the path of Helguson, before he failed to come and claim a late Andrew Taylor delivery, allowing the striker to head home from close range. Jewell admitted his keeper, who apologised on Twitter immediately after the match, had to take the blame for the result.

“There’s not a lot he can say,” said the Town boss. “I better read his Twitter page to see what explanation he gives. You don't want to single players out, but there’s no hiding that the two goalkeeping errors have cost us the game.”
