Match Reports

Imps 1 Ipswich Town 1

2 January 2023

The Imps began 2023 with a battling draw with high-flying Ipswich Town at the LNER Stadium.

City’s first attempt at goal came in the 12th minute as Regan Poole slipped a through ball behind the Ipswich defence for Ben House to run onto and flash an effort narrowly wide of the far post.

The Tractor Boys went close to going ahead in the 19th minute after Sam Morsy’s corner fell to an unmarked Lee Evans by the penalty spot who sent his fierce volley inches wide of the target.

Kieran McKenna’s side had two chances in quick succession to put themselves ahead midway through the first half as Sone Aluko’s low drive was blocked behind before the resulting corner was headed just over by Greg Leigh.

Ipswich continued to grow into the game and caused the Imps issues in the 37th minte from a corner which saw Regan Poole block Marcus Harness’ strike before Luke Woolfenden crashed the follow up onto the crossbar.

Following a strong City penalty claim, the visitors countered through Wes Burns whose cross was met by Harness to strike into the top right corner, although the flag went up against the Welshman.

The Imps were reduced to 10 men on the stroke of half-time when Morsy played a ball through to Kayden Jackson who was pulled back by Jackson, which the referee deemed to be a last man offence.

Town called Carl Rushworth into action from the resulting free-kick on the edge of the area as Evans struck it over the wall, only to be tipped over the bar by the City stopper.

It was the visitors who looked brighter at the beginning of the second half and they made Rushworth work when Aluko’s tidy pass to Jackson at the byline was followed by an angled strike which almost caught the keeper out.

Aluko continued to be a dangerman for the Tractor Boys and caused more havoc in the 52nd minute when his inswinging corner towards the near post was met by Burns who forced Rushworth to claw his header away from goal.

The Imps were awarded a penalty just after the hour mark after Paudie O’Connor was pulled to the ground by Luke Woolfenden following Sean Roughan’s corner.

Jack Diamond stepped up for the spot kick and slotted it into the bottom left corner, sending Christian Walton the wrong way. 

Despite going behind, Ipswich continued to have the better of the chances as Conor Chaplin’s effort from outside the area dipped just over the bar before Freddie Ladapo’s header was held after Burns had nodded the ball back across goal.

The pressure paid off for the visitors who equalised with less than 10 minutes to go as Chaplin played a delicate lofted ball over to Cameron Humphreys in the centre of the box who nodded down into the bottom right corner to earn a point for his side.

City: Carl Rushworth, Regan Poole ©, Adam Jackson, Paudie O’Connor, Ben House, Danny Mandroiu (Tom Hopper 46’), Lasse Sorensen, TJ Eyoma, Sean Roughan, Matty Virtue (Max Sanders 45+3’), Jack Diamond (Jamie Robson 83’). Subs (not used): Jordan Wright, Ted Bishop, Jordon Garrick. 

Goals: Diamond (64’ pen).

Ipswich: Christian Walton, Sam Morsy ©, Luke Woolfenden, Wes Burns (Cameron Humphreys 75’), Lee Evans, Marcus Harness (Conor Chaplin 65’), Cameron Burgess, Kayden Jackson (Freddie Ladapo 65’), Greg Leigh, Sone Aluko (Kyle Edwards 65’), Janoi Donacien (Kane Vincent-Young 46’). Subs (not used): Vaclav Hladky, Richard Keogh.
