Ipswich Town striker David McGoldrick has been called up to the Republic of Ireland squad for the first time.

The 26-year-old has been in superb form since joining Town from Nottingham Forest back in 2013, and he was linked with an £8million move to Leicester City in the summer.

McGoldrick has formed a potent strike partnership with Daryl Murphy at Portman Road, and now the duo will be able to combine at international level.

Former Ipswich Town defender Titus Bramble has been banned from driving for a year after he failed to reveal who was behind the wheel when an alleged speeding offence took place.

A car apparently registered under Bramble's name was seen speeding in Ipswich in April.

The 33-year-old didn't attend the hearing before West Suffolk Magistrates' Court, but was found guilty of failing to give information about the identity of the driver in his absence.

Ipswich Town defender Tyrone Mings has been named the SkyBet Championship's Player of the Month for September.

The 21 year old beat off competition from Norwich City striker Cameron Jerome, Blackpool goalkeeper Joe Lewis and Blackburn Rovers' Ben Marshall.

And in an awards double for Ipswich, boss Mick McCarthy was named the Championship's Manager of the Month for September, after steering the Blues to four wins and a draw over the period.

On Mings, Sky Sports’ Football League pundit Don Goodman said: “This flying full-back is showing, at 21, an athleticism and attitude that is great see.

“He can defend and he can create for his team. No wonder top-flight clubs were courting him.”

Meanwhile, Ipswich Town have flourished since losing the East Anglian derby in August- picking up 13 points from a possible 15 last month.

Left-back Tyrone Mings has been a key part of Town's success, showing exactly why he was the subject of Premier League interest in the summer.

The 21-year-old has been a revelation after filling the gap left by Aaron Cresswell, providing assists in the wins over Brighton and Hove Albion and Wigan Athletic.

Mings and Jerome face competition from Blackburn Rovers winger Ben Marshall and former Peterborough goalkeeper Joe Lewis to land the award.

Ipswich Town manager Mick McCarthy says that in-form striker Daryl Murphy is playing "some of the best football of his career" after the Irishman hit a brace in Sunday's 2-2 draw with Nottingham Forest.

Murphy hit a goal in either half to put Town into a 2-1 lead, but Michail Antonio's last minute leveller broke Ipswich hearts.

The result moves Ipswich into The Championship top six.

Despite the late setback, McCarthy was delighted with his team's performance and reserved special praise for his six-goal forward.

"They were two great goals from a striker playing some of the best football of his career and enjoying his football.

I have known him for a long time and Terry Connor is one of the best coaches of strikers I have seen. He's worked wonders with him."

Ipswich Town manager McCarthy: "We want to get promoted"

Ipswich Town manager Mick McCarthy believes that his team can be involved in the promotion shake-up at the end of the season.

Town are currently on an impressive six match unbeaten run, and recently won four games in a row.

A 1-1 draw with Sheffield Wednesday means that Ipswich are now just two points off the top two in The Championship, and McCarthy is setting his sights on top flight football next term.

"I'm happy with the squad and even though it's a dirty word and we can't mention it, we want to get promoted.

We set off with designs of the top six. I don't think we're one of the best teams or best squads in the league, although we're a competent squad, hard to beat and we've certainly improved.

We'll keep scrapping away and see where we end up."

– Mick McCarthy, Ipswich Town manager
