Ipswich gained their first win in six games as they defeated struggling Plymouth 3-1.
Joe Royle's side were rewarded for their impressive start to the game with two first half goals.
After 23 minutes James McEveley netted his first goal for Town, volleying the ball home with his left foot from Darren Currie's corner.
Plymouth failed to learn their lesson, and Ipswich scored again from a Currie corner just eight minutes later, Jimmy Juan finishing after Jason De Vos nodded the ball on.
In-form Hungarian, Akos Buzsaky, pulled a goal back for Plymouth, curling a delightful free kick into the top corner.
Ipswich responded immediately, Matthew Richards converting a penalty after Nicky Forster had been brought down by keeper Romain Larrieu.
Plymouth offered little threat in the closing stages and Ipswich held on for a crucial three points.
