The home side made two changes with
Tommy Smith and Guirane N'Daw brought into the side to replace Andy
Drury and the suspended Lee Martin.
Danny Lafferty made his first start
of the season for Burnley in place of Ben Mee who sustained a swollen
foot in the match against Leeds.
It was a quiet start but Campbell was
the first man to threaten for Ipswich as his turn and shot in the box
was saved by Lee Grant with N'Daw putting the rebound over the bar.
Martin Paterson tested Stephen
Henderson with a shot from a narrow angle but the goalkeeper made a
smart save with his feet at the near post.
Carlos Edwards and Richie Wellens
then combined well with Wellens' final ball finding Campbell in the
penalty area but Lee Grant made a smart save to tip his shot around the
Grant had his heart in his mouth as
he spilled Aaron Cresswell's cross but the ball was cleared off the line
before referee Mark Brown eventually awarded a free kick for a foul on
the goalkeeper by Murphy.
But just six minutes into the second
half Town took the lead as Grant was not given the benefit of the doubt
in a challenge with the Irish striker.
Wellens put a cross into the box and Murphy and Grant went up together with the former Sunderland man heading home.
Grant felt he was fouled and Burnley
players surrounded the referee but Brown was unmoved and Murphy was
awarded his first strike at Portman Road this season.
The home fans were calling for a red card as Ross Wallace brought down Cresswell but the referee produced a yellow.
Dyche brought on Junior Stanislas and
Marvin Bartley as he attempted to get his side back into the game but
barring a Stanislas shot over the bar, it was Ipswich who remained in control.
Dyche made his final substitution
bringing on Vokes and the striker had an almost instantaneous impact as
he levelled with 10 minutes to go.
Stanislas put a cross into the box and Vokes was credited with the final touch as he rose with Danny Higginbotham to meet the ball.
But in the 86th minute substitute
Jay-Emmanuel Thomas found Edwards who produced a wonderful cross for
Campbell to slot home and secure the win for Town.
