Referee Darren Drysdale and Ipswich star Alan Judge faced each other on Tuesday night … literally when the two heads were locked during the Tractor Boys’ draw against Northampton

The officer was caught on camera and moved his head towards the Ipswich midfielder on Portman Road before being led away from Northampton by Lloyd Jones

The judge was born in the 90 Minute by defender Peter Kioso in the penalty area – and the 32-year-old was in disbelief when Drysdale did not miss a penalty

Ipswich ace Flynn Downes was sent off in the third minute of stoppage time for violent behavior as the club’s poor form continued

Paul Lambert’s men have only won four of their last 14 League One games, making them 11th Have occupied space

Ipswich’s fights weren’t just on the pitch as their training session was canceled due to fan protests earlier this week

Disgruntled supporters threw torches, which resulted in a fence being set on fire when they called for Lambert to be fired

Former Ipswich striker Darren Bent commented on the strained relationship between the club’s hierarchy and the fans

“It’s a club that is very close to my heart,” Bent told talkSPORT. “I started there, I still watch their results and I speak to a number of fans of the football club and they are clearly not happy

“We’re talking about some of the nicest people you will meet They are not argumentative They just want to see what’s best for Ipswich and hopefully promote them”

“They feel like the core of the club is being ripped out, whether it is the owner or the manager, they are not happy with it either”

“The fact that we see torches interrupting training – this is nothing that has ever been associated with Ipswich

“There has always been a nice relationship between the club and the fans – but now it’s gotten mad

“Something has to change because it can’t go on. This is a club that shouldn’t be in the top division, they’ve been there for way too long”
