  • Reporting by Ned Payne

4:54pm

Final score: Ipswich 2 Cherries 2.

4:52pm

A useful low attempt from Grabban but Gerken makes sure the ball goes wide by getting a strong right hand to it.

4:51pm

Kermorgant catches a volley superbly from outside the area but his attempt is beaten away by Gerken.

4:49pm

Bournemouth Poppies have won 3-1 at Verwood.

4:49pm

Blackburn's lead at Birmingham has been cut to 4-2.

4:46pm

A Cresswell free kick from the left is met by sub Mings with a flicked header, but the ball drifts across goal and a matter of inches past the right post.

4:44pm

This game is getting very stretched now.

4:42pm

Out of nowhere, Cherries are level. The visitors win a free kick on the edge of the box and Surman tees up Ritchie, with the winger’s drive deflecting off the edge of the wall and into the left corner. Keeper Dean Gerken was completely wrong-footed.

4:38pm

On comes Tyrone Mings, formerly of Southern League Chippenham.

4:37pm

Poole lead Bashley 5-0.

4:33pm

Some 890 Cherries fans made the trip to Portman Road today.

4:31pm

Birmingham have pulled one back against Blackburn and trail 4-1.

4:29pm

It’s Pugh’s last act as he is replaced by Tokelo Rantie. Meanwhile, Adam Smith comes on for Charlie Daniels.

4:28pm

Wonderful move from Cherries as the ball passes through Kermorgant, Surman and Ritchie before Francis crosses low across goal. Pugh is unmarked at the back post but he skies over the bar. What a chance. Should have been 2-2.

4:23pm

Cherries need to get a foothold in this second half. They have struggled since the break.

4:22pm

Wimborne are 2-0 ahead against Tiverton.

4:21pm

Ipswich are sixth in the Championship as we stand.

4:20pm

Poole are now 4-0 up against Bashley.

4:19pm

The home side are back in front once more. It was an absolute peach of a free kick delivery from the left by Cresswell and half-time sub Paul Green powered a bullet header straight down the middle.

4:14pm

Anderson can't carry on following an earlier injury. He's replaced by Frank Nouble.

4:14pm

Wimborne are 1-0 up against Tiverton.

4:12pm

Grabban beats the offside trap but can’t control the ball. What a chance that nearly was.

4:11pm

Watford lead 1-0 against QPR.

4:10pm

Blackpool have levelled at 1-1 against Brighton.

4:07pm

Verwood pull one back against Poppies and are just 2-1 down now.

4:07pm

Brighton are 1-0 up against Blackpool.

4:05pm

Poole lead Bashley 2-0.

4:05pm

4:04pm

The players are back out.

4:03pm

Having watched the replay, it turns out Cook teed himself up by heading the ball into the air. It was difficult to tell initially as several players went for the ball, but that's a goal AND an assist for the centre-half. I wonder if he meant it...

3:59pm

Poole 1-0 up against relegated Bashley in the Southern Prem.

3:58pm

Wimborne drawing 0-0 at home to Tiverton after first 45 minutes.

3:56pm

Cherries had 14 shots to Ipswich's four in that first half.

3:53pm

Blackburn 4-0 up at Birmingham at half-time. Brighton level at 0-0 with Blackpool. Wigan 2-0 down at Burnley.

3:49pm

3:49pm

What an equaliser that was. A Daniels free kick from deep isn’t cleared and of all people, Steve Cook, leaps high and smashes a superb bicycle kick into the roof of the net from seven yards. I can’t imagine he’ll ever score one like that again.

3:49pm

Grabban goes close but the ball deflects behind.

3:45pm

Barmy couple of minutes. Fair to say the Tractor Boys scored against the run of play. A two-goal lead would have been very harsh on Cherries.

3:44pm

It could so easily have been 2-0. A free kick from the boot of Cresswell is bound for the left corner, but Lee Camp dives full-length to tip the ball against the outside of the post. Wonderful stop.

3:42pm

The hosts take the lead with their first shot on target. Cole Skuse delivers across the face of goal and Daryl Murphy just misses the ball sliding in, but Paul Anderson is there to slam into the roof of the net at the back post.

3:40pm

Left-back Aaron Cresswell has Ipswich’s first shot of the game from a narrow angle. It was nowhere near, in truth. A bit of a wild attempt.

3:38pm

Ward squashes Jonny Williams after winning a header in the box. Half-hearted calls for a penalty from the home fans. Referee D'Urso not interested.

3:37pm

A comedy of errors as Ritchie and Eunan O’Kane both mis-kick in the area. O’Kane’s was more central and a better chance.

3:34pm

Marc Pugh turns his man inside out and crosses for Kermorgant, but the Frenchman can’t quite grow enough and his header loops clear of the bar.

3:31pm

Striker Yann Kermorgant misjudges a header from Francis’ cross and the ball flies off-target.

3:30pm

Francis shoots miles over the bar from range after Cherries force a couple of corners.

3:29pm

Bournemouth Poppies have doubled their lead against Verwood. That's 2-0.

3:28pm

Blackburn are now 3-0 up at Birmingham.

3:26pm

Burnley lead Wigan 1-0.

3:23pm

Blackburn now lead 2-0 at Birmingham.

3:22pm

Most of the pressure is from Cherries so far, but the visitors have nothing to show for it.

3:21pm

The first attempt on goal finally arrives as Grabban screws well wide of the near post from 20 yards.

3:17pm

Blackburn are one up at Birmingham.

3:16pm

Still no shots on goal at Portman Road.

3:13pm

Bournemouth Poppies lead 1-0 at Verwood in the Wessex League. The goalscorer was Elliot Ward (not that one) from the spot. 

3:09pm

Very little to report from the opening exchanges.

3:03pm

3:02pm

Skipper Francis calls the Cherries players into a huddle. Proud moment for him today.

2:58pm

Arter has joined Richard Hughes and Brett Pitman in the press box to watch the game.

2:56pm

Arter is missing from today's squad due to a thigh injury while Elphick has been struggling with a back complaint.

2:52pm

DataCo restrictions mean that as always, today's game will be reported with a three-minute delay.

2:51pm

Andy D'Urso is today's referee.

2:50pm

Portman Road is bathed in sunshine and it is a warm day for football.

2:44pm

As we stand, Cherries are three points off the play-offs with three games to go. We will know a bit more about the outcome of the 2013/14 season come 5pm, although Nottingham Forest are kicking off at Leeds at 5.15pm.

2:39pm

Daniels last started in the 2-1 win over Huddersfield on January 28 while Ward last started in the 1-0 defeat to Leicester on February 1.

2:37pm

In Elphick’s absence, Simon Francis is captain for the day.

2:34pm

A coach delay meant Cherries' players only started their warm-up a few minutes ago.

2:33pm

Ipswich starting XI v Cherries: Gerken; Richardson, Chambers, Smith, Cresswell; Anderson, Wordsworth, Skuse, Hunt; Williams; Murphy.

Subs: Loach, Mings, Green, Tabb, Taylor, Marriott, Nouble.

2:30pm

Boss Eddie Howe has made two changes, both in defence, with skipper Tommy Elphick and Ian Harte relegated to the bench. Elliott Ward and Charlie Daniels are chosen in their place. Striker Lewis Grabban is considered fit enough for selection but there is no place in the squad for midfielder Harry Arter, available following a three-game suspension.

1:40pm

Cherries starting XI v Ipswich: Camp; Francis, Ward, Cook, Daniels; Ritchie, O'Kane, Surman, Pugh; Kermorgant, Grabban.

Subs: Allsop, Elphick, Harte, Smith, MacDonald, Fraser, Rantie.

Alasdair, a few weeks ago you stated that we would have to win at Millwall, I think you just might be right, Boro and Yeovil to take a draw in their next away games and we are definitely still in with a REAL shout.
Regardless of what happens, I thank all the staff at AFCB as I have had a perpetual grin on my face all season. Remember 5 years ago, Luton have only just got back

So we have drawn another 'must win' game but thanks to other results it's still possible to make play offs. Nice that the Forest game still has something on it and their result tonight is largely irrelevant as we have to beat them anyway. Don't want to get off this ride just yet! UTC!

I had the impression (from the radio) that he added a bit of threat and energy to the forwards. He had a couple of near-chances, but before you get on his back, I think Pugh and Grabban both missed much easier chances.

I really think he is a vastly more effective forward option than Pitman, and just needs a bit of practice converting those one-on-ones.

If we beat Forest, and Forest last game is against Brighton, both can't pick up 3 pts, so if we beat Forest it will go to the last game, lets us just pray that Middlesbrough can get a draw or better at Reading tomorrow,
Reading last game is against Eddies OB, so AGAIN, a win against Forest and Alasdair would be right in his long ago prediction, Last game to win at Millwall.
Oh and Ipswich travel to Burnley. ALL STILL TO PLAY FOR

Yeah we need a lot of improbable favours. If Brighton do beat Yeovil on friday, that effectively will kill it for us due to their superior goal difference.

Having supported the reds for over 50 years, there have been very few positives in all that time, allow some of us to have just two more weeks of a possible fairy tale, or would you negative nellies prefer us to be Luton or Portsmouth. DREAMS can come true, but believing it is possible is the next best thing.

Not a negative nelly, just stating a fact. I remain positive and regardless of where we finish, it has been a fantastic season which has exceeded all realistic expectations. UTC!

His 3 match ban was over before today game which we should have won comfortably .Talking to some Ipswich fans on the train back and they were very happy with a point they admitted they didnt deserve.If Pugh hadnt missed an absolute sitter i think we would have gone on to win and Rantie when he came on looked like a lost schoolboy trying too hard and no confidence at all.

Does anyone know why elphick was dropped today , was rantie in the team today? If we don't make the playoffs 7 th would be a good place to finish . Just think of all the teams we would finish above ..
Sorry didn't notice that rantie came on
I had the impression (from the radio) that he added a bit of threat and energy to the forwards. He had a couple of near-chances, but before you get on his back, I think Pugh and Grabban both missed much easier chances.

I really think he is a vastly more effective forward option than Pitman, and just needs a bit of practice converting those one-on-ones.
She was asleep as usual, has no idea whats going on. bet she is always asking whas going on?
