Report: Ipswich Town U23s 4-2 City U23s

City produced a sterling second-half fightback but couldn’t get the result they wanted as Ipswich Town held on to win 4-2 at Playford Road.

The Young Robins were 3-0 up by half-time as Freddie Sears put the hosts ahead, followed by Aaron Drinan’s low drive and an own goal from Barney Soady.

City rallied after the break and Saikou Janneh saw a shot saved off the line, while Owura Edwards had a penalty appeal dismissed as the Young Robins sought a way back into the game.

Louis Britton had also gone close on a couple of occasions before he got on the scoresheet after heading home from a Zac Smith cross and crosses would prove to work in City’s favour as just minutes later George Nurse’s delivery was turned in by Janneh’s header.

City had done well to pull the score difference back to just one goal but they had Jojo Wollacott to thank after he saved well from a free kick as the Tractor Boys pressed to extend their lead.

However, the home side did just that courtesy of Tyreece Simpson who supplied the finish four minutes from time.

This was City’s first defeat in six matches and they will now look to bounce back against Nottingham Forest at the Optima Stadium next Tuesday (April 13th, 1pm KO).

City v Ipswich: Wollacott, Webb, Soady, Taylor, Nurse, Morton, Owers, Z Smith, Ow Edwards, Britton, Janneh (Palmer-Houlden). Subs not used: L Smith, Sage, Taylor-Clarke.
