Ipswich Town 4-1 Burton Albion

Kayden Jackson and Alan Judge both scored twice as Ipswich came from behind to beat Burton 4-1 and rekindle their challenge for a play-off place in League One.

The victory was Town's first in five games and left them one point off sixth-placed Portsmouth.

Albion's goal came after a sixth-minute strike from Jamie Murphy but they were swept aside as their winless run reached six games.

Will Keane spurned a gilt-edged chance to put the home side into the lead when he had just Burton goalkeeper Kieran O'Hara to beat.

And Ipswich paid the price when Murphy soon struck for Albion.

Town goalkeeper Tomas Holy palmed over a shot from Joe Powell and Judge crashed a shot off the underside of the bar.

Judge did equalise in the 29th minute when he converted inside the six-yard box and Jackson put Town into the lead just before the break when he lobbed the ball over O'Hara, who was injured in the challenge and replaced by Ben Garratt.

Jackson stooped low to head home a cross from Judge to put Town further in front in the 52nd minute and Judge made it 4-1 in the 63rd minute when his low effort squirmed under Garratt and just crossed the line.
