Report: Ipswich Town Under-23s 2-2 Bristol City Under-23s

City Under-23s were pegged back by an experienced Ipswich Town side to draw 2-2 in Suffolk this evening

Arnold Garita and Jake Andrews both scored in the first half for Luke Williams’ side, but goals from Ben Folami and Flynn Downes earned a share of the spoils as the hosts fought back after half-time.

The opening goal came after 23 minutes as Garita got on the end of Rory Holden’s cross to take a calm touch before firing past Michael Crowe in the home goal.

Folami slammed a shot over the crossbar as Town attempted an instant response, but it was City who would go further in front nine minutes before the break.

Andrews produced a superb free kick from the edge of the box to beat Crowe for a second time.

City had the chance to make it 3-0 after half-time as Opi Edwards danced his way into the area and chipped Crowe, only to see the rebound back from the crossbar.

It proved a key turning point as Ipswich began their fightback through Folami’s goal soon after.

The Australian popped up at the far post to tap home Danny Rowe’s cross from six yards out.

Aaron Parsons did superbly to rush back and clear another Folami effort off the line after the former Macclesfield man had rounded City keeper Alhaji Sesay.

But the hosts weren’t to be denied an equaliser. Downes pounced to convert from close range after Sesay had done well to keep out Ben Morris’ driven shot.

City Under-23s: Sesay, Parsons, Baldwin, (Turner-Williams 86), Plavotic, Edwards, Bakinson, Morton (Richards 65), Andrews, Nurse, Garita, Holden (Akpobire 75).
