57 - Blues have been riding the Ipswich storm so far in this second-half. Blues' only opening in the second period coming through Mrabti - who gets the ball from Davis inside the area with his back to goal, before shooting on the turn, but it goes wide.

48 - Off the post! Ipswich nearly go ahead. Judge connects with a deep cross and his volley beats Camp but hits the bottom of the post and trickles along the line before Dean clears for a corner, nothing comes of the set-piece. All Ipswich here.

0-1 #BluesLIVE

22 - Close! Blues go down the other end and nearly double our advantage - Jota gathers the ball on the edge of the area after an initial clearance falls straight to him - he looks up before forcing Bialkowski into a smart save at his near-post.

0-1 #BluesLIVE

20 - The hosts get their first opportunity of the match, Kenlock drives forward before shaping up to shoot, just outside the box, but his curling effort goes just over the bar. Blues still lead.

0-1 #BluesLIVE

17 - Chance! Mrabti is picked out inside the box by Colin after he played a neat-one-two with Jota, he watches it as the ball drops down and attempts a shot at goal on the volley, he doesn't catch it cleanly and his effort is blocked by a defender and cleared.

0-1 #BluesLIVE

15 - Blues are looking a real threat going forward in the early stages, Jutkiewicz and Adams seeing a lot of the ball, Colin and Jota looking promosing down the right-hand-side.

0-1 #BluesLIVE

7 - Colin gets the ball out wide and crosses it in at the first time of asking, it goes low, straight across the six-yard area and Jutkiewicz is there to smash it home into the roof of the net and give Blues an early lead here.
