Match Report

Millwall 4 Ipswich 1

JAY SIMPSON hopes his loan spell at Millwall will become permanent after getting a standing ovation at the Den.

The Lions faithful rose to applaud the former Arsenal and England Under-21 striker after seeing him score twice and have a hand in the other two goals.

Simpson, 22, said: "When I signed for Millwall at the start of the season I hoped it would be for the full season and was disappointed when Hull said it was only until January.

"It's my second time on loan here and I am enjoying myself and want be be a part of their success.

"I'm convinced we can push for a place in the play-offs. We have a strong bond as a group and we all fight for each other.

"Three wins in this division can take you from the relegation zone to the play-off places."

Millwall host fellow strugglers Coventry tomorrow and the signs are good for the Londoners after two wins and two draws in their last four games.

The Tractor Boys bickered with each other while Simpson, Liam Feeney, Darius Henderson and Brian Howard ripped them apart.

The Lions were 2-0 up after nine minutes with Simpson striking first before Henderson got his fourth goal in two games after Simpson's shot was parried by keeper David Stockdale.

Ipswich pulled one back in the 66th minute through a breathtaking solo goal from the unpredictable Jimmy Bullard.

But the Lions scored two in two minutes as Simpson took advantage of a Bullard error to put in winger Feeney and then cut inside to score his second of the day on 75 minutes.

Town boss Paul Jewell said: "We want to play as if we are three goals up. There's too many people doing their own thing."

SUN STAR MAN JAY SIMPSON (Millwall). Ace deserved all his plaudits.
