It's safe to assume Ipswich manager Mick McCarthy will not be accepting any criticism for his team's 1-1 draw at Leeds on Tuesday night.
Danny Guthrie scored a stunning goal 15 minutes from time to hand Reading a 2-1 victory over Ipswich on their return to the Championship.
Jay Tabb had opened the scoring for Ipswich against his former club, but his early effort was cancelled out by Adam Le Fondre in first half stoppage time.
And it was Guthrie who left the best until last, giving Scott Loach little chance of keeping out his fearsome strike.
Ipswich have completed the signing of Manchester United midfielder Ryan Tunnicliffe on a six-month loan deal.
The 20-year-old becomes Mick McCarthy's 10th signing of the summer in what has been a busy close-season at Portman Road.
Ipswich Town could re-sign defender Titus Bramble 11 years after he first left the club, after taking the former Sunderland defender on trial.
Bramble appeared in a friendly for the Tractor Boys ion Tuesday night against Gillingham.
– Ipswich manager Mick McCarthy speaking to the club's official website
I only met up with Titus for the first time at our pre-match meal. He asked if he could come in for training and wanted to play.
He's obviously interested in coming here and we are interested in him otherwise he wouldn't be playing for us. He showed a good commitment to come and play but it's early days yet. No more than that.
