IPSWICH Town produced another encouraging performance as they fought back from behind to rescue a point at Bristol City tonight.

Lloyd Kelly's own goal handed them a share of the spoils from a 1-1 draw, following a first-half opener from former Blue Adam Webster.

Town looked doomed and set for League One football next season, currently adrift at the foot of the Championship table.

However, at least they are making a fight of it, restoring pride and becoming hard to beat.

Tonight's draw was their fifth 1-1 in six matches, with the other result being a costly reverse against Reading.

Paul Lambert's men are now 11 points from safety, having narrowed the gap on second-from-bottom Bolton Wanderers, who lost 2-0 at home to Sheffield Wednesday.

Fellow strugglers Millwall and Rotherham United play tomorrow night, at Birmingham City and QPR respectively.

Town had plenty of possession in their match at Ashton Gate, without creating too many chances or severely testing Robins keeper Stefan Marinovic.

They were made to pay when Webster - a summer signing from Ipswich - nodded them into a 32nd-minute lead, out-jumping Toto Nsiala and connecting with Niclas Eliasson's cross.

But Town's deserved leveller came on 69 minutes.

Jon Nolan nudged the ball into Myles Kenlock's pass and the full-back's driven cross from the left was inadvertently turned into his own net by England Under-21 international Kelly.

It was another positive performance from Town, who are undoubtedly growing in stature under Lambert.

They will hope to continue their upward development when Nottingham Forest visit Portman Road on Saturday.

Town: Bialkowski, Emmanuel, Chambers, Nsiala, Kenlock, Chalobah, Dozzell (Bishop 86), Nolan (Skuse 75), Edwards, Judge (El Mizouni 75), Jackson. Unused: Wright, Harrison, Bree, Dawkins.
