Tommy Smith's strike gives Ipswich Town the lead going into the break in their Championship clash against Sheffield Wednesday.
Tommy Smith's strike has given Ipswich Town the lead going into the break in their Championship clash against Sheffield Wednesday this afternoon.
Wednesday started brightly, with Michail Antonio forcing a good block from Luke Chambers following a close-range effort.
Strong defending from Wednesday's Glenn Loovens then denied Jonny Williams in the area, with the Ipswich striker ready to pounce.
Smith opened the scoring 10 minutes before half time, when he tapped in despite Owls keeper Damian Martinez producing a fine save to keep out Daryl Murphy's initial effort.
Moments after the goal, Murphy hit the post after cutting inside Joe Mattock.
Ipswich keeper Dean Gerken then denied Antonio and Caolan Lavery with two fingertip saves to preserve his side's advantage just before half time.
