Quinn sinks Wednesday as Ipswich win away at last

Last updated at 21:53 02 February 2008

Alan Quinn returned to Hillsborough

to leave his old club in

relegation trouble as Ipswich

finally picked up their first away

win of the season.

The 28-year-old midfielder, a

£400,000 signing from Sheffield

United last month, broke the deadlock

in the fourth minute with a

spectacular strike into the top

corner from 25 yards.

Marcus Tudgay levelled matters

nine minutes later with his sixth

goal of the season. Jermaine Johnson's

stinging drive was deflected

on to the bar by Jason De Vos and

from the resulting corner Tudgay

powered the ball past Stephen


Ipswich substitute Alan Lee killed off Wednesday in the 71st minute,

hooking the ball past Lee Grant

from close range.

Wednesday manager Brian Laws

admitted his side are in deep trouble.

He said: "We're in a dogfight.

Five of our next eight games are at

home and the results will be crucial.

We all know the position we

are in and performances like this

will not help."

Relieved Ipswich boss Jim Magilton

said: "The away win has been a

long time coming but hopefully we

can use this result as a springboard

for the rest of the season."
