Ipswich Town players mock Sky Sports pundit and slam Leeds during promotion parade

Ipdwich Town beat second-placed Leeds United in the Championship on the final day of the season and the Tractor Boys’ promotion party saw some take aim at their rivals

Sky Sports pundit Don Goodman and promotion chasers Leeds United were among the targets, while Ipswich Town’s players celebrated their promotion.

The Tractor Boys have secured back-to-back promotions under Kieran McKenna and are set to return to the Premier League for the first time in 22 years. The team celebrated with an alcohol-fuelled open-top bus parade, where stars Luke Woolfenden were among those who walked in front of the Sky Sports cameras.

“Leeds is falling apart again”, to Joy Division’s “Love Will Tear Us Apart”, was among the most popular songs of those celebrating. Daniel Farke’s side had 86 points with six games to play but won just one of the six to finish third.

Leeds’ collapse allowed Ipswich to claim second place behind Leicester, although promotion was not officially sealed until the final day. A win over relegated Huddersfield, combined with Leeds’ defeat at Southampton, made the gap a more comfortable six points.

“For six weeks we’ve been listening to Don Goodman tell us we’re not good enough to do anything in the Prem like we did in the Champ,” Woolfenden said. “We’re still going to finish mid-table (in the Championship), Don, but don’t worry about that.”

After being briefly interrupted by another Leeds-themed chant, the defender continued: “This group can do whatever we want man. I worked so hard.”

Ipswich supporters shared another clip on social media which they believed showed an interviewer being asked to remove elements of Goodman and Leeds. If so, however, he was not very lucky.
