A special moment
Saturday 5th November 2011, Ipswich Town 2 Doncaster Rovers 3 - Championship, Portman Road
The result was a disaster, the players were like novices, the manager needs help but one moemnt in the game will live with those who were there for ever. The reception Billy Sharp received from the Town fans.
Despite the Doncaster Rovers striker scoring in the first half to make it 2-0, supporters inside Portman Road applauded in a poignant tribute to Sharp, whose newborn baby tragically passed away last Saturday.
The striker, who turned and applauded the Sir Bobby Robson Stand following his goal in this afternoon’s 3-2 win, tweeted after the game: “Will never forget that moment today at portman road,ipswich town fans unbelievable,never seen anything like it. #special.”
