Semi a 'bonus' for Keane

Roy KEANE maintains Ipswich must treat their Carling Cup semi-final date with Arsenal as a "bonus" and get back up the Championship table.

Despite being short of personnel, Keane's strugglers battled their way past West Brom at Portman Road last night via a second-half penalty from Grant Leadbitter. "Getting into semi-final is a real bonus but that is all it is, a bonus," said the Ipswich boss. "In terms of the draw it is the hardest we could have got, but it will be great for the players.

"The league, though, is our bread and butter and we need to get up that table."
