Match Report

AIDY’S IDEAL HOME SHOW

THE Sky Blues breezed into Portman Road – and took it over

Aidy Boothroyd’s side transformed the away dressing room into 'Little Coventry' with a crest over the door, posters inside and an exhibition stand outside making sure everyone knew they were there.

They made themselves at home on the pitch too, ­going ahead through Clive Platt inside 19 minutes.

City defender Richard Keogh, released by Ipswich as a teenager, believes turning their dressing room into a Sky Blue zone was a winner.

He said: “We are coming to someone else’s ground but we don’t want to make it any different to how we prepare for home games so we set it all up for that.”

It was Coventry’s first win at Portman Road since 1994. Lukas Jutkiewicz hit the crossbar and then ­secured victory from the penalty spot, his third successful spot-kick of the season, before Jason Scotland got one back for Ipswich.

“One of these days I will stick one away in open play,” said Jutkiewicz. “Penalties are keeping me ticking over.”

After starting with just one up front Ipswich finished with three in attack although on-loan Tottenham midfielder Jake Livermore denied it was tactics that had cost them.

“It is not formation or strategies, there are 11 players out there looking to win,” he said.

“We never really got out of the blocks quickly enough.”
