Ipswich’s perfect start to the Championship season came to an end after they were beaten 4-3 by Leeds in a seven-goal thriller at Portman Road.
Georginio Rutter cancelled out Joe Rodon’s own goal to level the scores early on and Leeds stormed ahead as Wilfried Gnonto, who returned to the squad after ending his transfer stand-off with the club, and new signing Joel Piroe gave them the advantage.
Nathan Broadhead pulled one back for Ipswich just before the break but Luis Sinisterra extended the advantage and Daniel Farke’s side held on to their first win of the season despite Conor Chaplin’s 97th-minute strike.
Defeat drops Ipswich from first to sixth, with Leicester jumping to the summit after beating Rotherham 2-1. Kasey McAteer scored either side of Fred Onyedinma’s leveller, his first senior goals securing victory for the Foxes, who go two points clear of Norwich following their 4-0 win at Huddersfield.
The Canaries remain unbeaten thanks to goals from Josh Sargent, Jonathan Rowe, Adam Idah and an Ashley Barnes penalty.
Defeat sees the Terriers sink to second bottom, with Middlesbrough just above them in the relegation zone after losing 4-2 to West Brom at the Hawthorns.

Brandon Thomas-Asante extended the Baggies’ lead after the break and Middlesbrough’s afternoon soon soured when Tommy Smith was shown his second yellow card of the match.
Boro were able to pull one back with five minutes to go when Marcus Forss slotted home from the penalty spot but the hosts sealed the three points to go seventh.
Birmingham and Southampton are third and fourth after both sides earned 2-1 wins.

Ryan Wintle’s late penalty earned Cardiff their first win of the season against Sheffield Wednesday with Millwall and Preston picking up victories over Stoke and Swansea, while Coventry’s clash with Sunderland finished goalless.
