Reports of Ipswich sacking Keane dismissed

Ipswich have denied reports that boss Roy Keane is set to lose his job at Portman Road. Keane has won just three league games since replacing Jim Magilton in April and saw his side held to a goalless draw by Sheffield Wednesday on Saturday.

Reports suggested the former Manchester United captain was set to be shown the door on Monday after a board meeting on Sunday but the club insist there is no change in management planned.

A club spokesman said: "Reports in the press that Roy will be sacked are complete rubbish.

"There were no meetings over the weekend and Roy remains in charge."

Ipswich have scored just 17 goals in their 17 Championship games to date and Keane wants his team to up their efforts.

He said: "We are looking a bit more solid at the back but we're obviously not scoring enough.

"You just need someone to have that killer instinct and put the ball in the back of the net. We're lacking that at the moment.

"If you're going to achieve anything as a team, you need one or two of your strikers to put the ball in the back of the net on a regular basis."
