EX-IRELAND INTERNATIONAL Kevin Foley made his Ipswich debut at the weekend, after signing for the club in the January transfer window.

Foley couldn’t prevent Mick McCarthy’s side losing 2-1 to Bristol City, however, as Daryl Murphy also featured in the match, while ex-Ireland U21 international Jay Tabb was an unused sub. Alex Pearce also didn’t get off the bench for City.

Joe Mason scored his second goal in two appearances for Wolves, who lost 2-1 at Molineux against a Preston side who had Greg Cunningham and Alan Browne in their starting XI, while Eoin Doyle was a late substitute. The hosts also had former Bohemians youth player Matt Doherty in their side.

Shane Duffy and Daragh Lenihan both started, as Blackburn lost 2-0 at home to Hull, for whom David Meyler was a late substitute.

Stephen Ward, Paul McShane and Stephen Quinn all started, as Reading and Burnley drew 0-0. Sean Dyche’s side remain third in the Championship as a result.

Stephen Gleeson played the full 90 minutes, as Birmingham drew 0-0 with Rotherham, who had Paul Green in their team.

Aiden McGeady was a 62nd minute sub, as Sheffield Wednesday beat Brenford 4-0, while Keiren Westwood played the full 90 minutes. Alan Judge featured for the Bees.
