Ipswich Town 0-1 Fleetwood Town

Ched Evans came off the bench to score the only goal of the game and boost Fleetwood up to sixth spot in League One after they claimed a 1-0 victory over Ipswich.

The result extended Fleetwood's unbeaten run to 10 games while Ipswich recorded their third successive defeat.

Fleetwood midfielder Callum Connolly was hurt and received a bloodied nose in the 11th minute and was replaced five minutes later by Evans.

It was not until the 29th minute when Ipswich skipper Luke Chambers deflected a cross by Barrie McKay against his own goal post that either goal was threatened.

But five minutes before the break Fleetwood took the lead when Evans played a one-two with McKay to fire home past Ipswich keeper Tomas Holy.

Substitute Freddie Sears had a volley deflected over the bar and Ipswich almost equalised following a goalmouth scramble when Jon Nolan's shot was blocked and Simpson produced an acrobatic save from Alex Cairns who tipped his shot over the bar.
