Town had to come from behind after former MK Dons loanee Patrick Bamford opened the scoring after just 33 seconds, but a sensational strike from the impressive Jonny Williams evened things up with 20 minutes to play.

The game looked to be heading for a draw, but Berra had other ideas, connecting with an Aaron Cresswell corner to bag all three points.

If that wasn't enough, Town's play-off rivals Wigan Athletic, Reading, Nottingham Forest, and Brighton and Hove Albion all lost meaning that the Tractor Boys are now just two points outside the top six with eight games left to play.

Ipswich Town have signed Crystal Palace midfielder Jonny Williams on a month's loan.

The Welsh international played a key role in helping the Eagles reach the Premier League last season, but has found his chances limited since new manager Tony Pulis took over in November.

Crystal Palace midfielder Jonny Williams could be set to join Ipswich Town on loan after the Eagles co-chairman admitted that talks are at an advanced stage.

Steve Parish was quoted in the Croydon Advertiser as saying that the talented Welshman will spend the next month at Portman Road.

20-year-old Williams was a key component of the Palace team that gained promotion to the Premier League last season, and he scored against Ipswich's under-21s on Monday.

"It's pretty much done. He can't be recalled (during that time)," Parish said.

"Jonny is not miles away from the squad, but we might get an injury so we just need to be sensible.

"We had three clubs who wanted him. The manager (Tony Pulis) has got a good relationship with Mick McCarthy.

"Ipswich is a good place for him to go and Jonny is really happy to go there."
