Report: Ipswich Town U23s 4-2 Bristol City U23s

Luke Williams’ young Robins showed character but couldn’t force a remarkable comeback away to Ipswich Town.

They were already 4-0 down at Playford Road before George Nurse and Sam Bell struck with consolation strikes in their first match of 2019 in the Professional Development League.

Ben Morris’ curling shot gave Ipswich Town a fourth minute lead.

Aaron Sainsbury in the City goal would keep out efforts from Conor McKendry and Barry Cotter before the young Tractor Boys would double their lead.

It came courtesy of Morris who latched on to McKendry’s flicked pass before firing the ball into the net at the near post.

An away goal for the visiting Robins would be a lifeline heading into the break but just minutes before half-time, the hosts would strike again.

Ben Folami grabbed the third after good work from Morris who drove forward from deep before finding Dawkins. His shot was blocked, but landed cruelly at the feet of Folami who tucked the ball home.

Sainsbury superbly prevented a fourth before Town did add another goal - Folami’s second of the afternoon.

City would score two goals without reply when Nurse converted a 69th minute penalty, before Town’s Tristan Nydam was dispossessed and Bell rounded Harry Wright in the Tractor Boys’ goal to slot the ball into the empty net.

City team: Sainsbury, Turner-Williams, Ali, Williams, H Smith (c), Parsons, Trialist, Nurse, Pearson, Rees, Harrison. Subs: Buse, Owers, Bell, Harper.
