Honours even at Pride Park
[.[views].], BY ClubCall
Ipswich missed out on the chance to leapfrog Derby in the npower Championship table after the two sides played out an entertaining goalless draw at Pride Park.
The visitors were on the front foot for long periods and Rams goalkeeper Frank Fielding made a pair of fine first-half saves from Michael Chopra and Lee Martin.
After the interval Fielding touched a Jay Emmanuel-Thomas drive onto the post and Town were unable to find a way through.
Derby's main threat came from the pace of Theo Robinson in attack and Ben Davies' set-piece delivery, and Jason Shackell had a header from the latter's corner cleared off the line in the closing moments.
The point lifts the Rams up to 12 in the table, while Ipswich remain a point behind them in 15th.
