Ipswich boss Keane urges Sunderland striker Healy to be like Van Nistelrooy

Sunderland striker David Healy scored his first goal for almost a year in Ipswich's 1-1 draw at Scunthorpe United.

Healy struck on 74 minutes as keeper Joe Murphy hesitated to end a barren run going back to February 7 2009 when he scored for Sunderland.

Boss Roy Keane said: "That's David all over. He's a natural goalscorer and this one should do him the world of good.

"Take it from me, the Michael Owens and Ruud van Nistelrooys of this world usually score from six or seven yards rather than from 20 or 25.

"Now, David needs a run in the side. We'll see, because there's plenty of competition. But he's looked sharp in training."
