Ipswich Town 1 Sunderland 1 - Story of the day as Nathan Broadhead earns Cats a point after Leon Dajaku injury blow

Full-time verdict from Portman Road

Full-Time: Ipswich 1 Sunderland 1

Four minutes added time

87’ O’Brien on for Broadhead

84’ Chances at both ends

A really important block from Wright after Vincent-Young beat Gooch on the left before his cut-back found Chaplin inside the area. Wright stood his ground to stop the shot.

At the other end Stewart couldn’t quite control the ball inside the area before Ipswich managed to get players back.

Still all to play for.

79’ Wright header blocked

Sunderland have just racked up three corners in a row but couldn’t take advantage of any of them.

Wright’s header was blocked after Embleton’s in-swinging delivery.

74’ Broadhead almost through again

The forward was sent through on goal again but this time he went just a little bit too early.

The offside flag was eventually raised.

69’ Second change for Ipswich
