David McGoldrick scores two goals in the space of four first-half minutes to give Ipswich Town a 2-0 half-time lead over Brighton & Hove Albion.
David McGoldrick's four-minute double salvo has given Ipswich Town a 2-0 half-time lead over Brighton & Hove Albion at Portman Road.
The away side, who had the Championship's second-best defensive record at the start of play, should have taken the lead inside the opening 10 minutes, but Andrew Crofts squandered a glorious opportunity following good work by Will Buckley on the right wing.
Ipswich Town got the opener through McGoldrick, who grabbed his fourth goal of the season when his 25-yard effort looped over Tomasz Kuszczak via a wicked deflection off Gordon Greer.
McGoldrick doubled his tally just four minutes later when he surged past Greer and drilled a low finish into the far corner.
Result: Brighton see off Bolton >
