Teddy Bishop scored on his return to action as Ipswich Town’s Under 23s drew 2-2 at Millwall this afternoon.

Bishop, along with midfield partner for the day Emyr Huws, has not kicked a ball for the Blues this season due to injury, with Huws dealing with an Achilles problem and Bishop working his way back to fitness having undergone groin surgery in August.

But they both played at The Den as part of an Ipswich side which also included Myles Kenlock and Danny Rowe, with Bishop equalising Harry Donovan’s opener just after the half hour mark, as he curled home a free-kick from the edge of the box.

Millwall then took the lead again through Kristian Brymora before Ben Morris, who yesterday signed a new deal at Portman Road, grabbed a late equaliser.

Huws also played for the Blues’ young side against Aston Villa on Monday night, having withdrawn from international duty with Wales as he continues to fight for a first team return.

Manager Mick McCarthy previously hinted Huws could have been involved in the home game at Preston last weekend, but he was not named in the matchday 18 with the visit to Hull next Saturday now a target.

Bishop, who has struggled with a number of injury issues in recent years, has not played for the Blues since their defeat at Rotherham in April.

Ipswich Town U23s: Crowe M, Crowe D, Kenlock, Bishop, Woolfenden, Webber, Rowe, Huws, Morris, Folami, McLoughlan

Subs: Clements, Ware, McKendry, Daniel, Dabro

If, like me, you remember the Green’Un Saturday night football paper, produced here in Ipswich, you probably do so with fondness.

Allan Hunter was one of Ipswich Town’s best-ever signings, helping drive the Blues to become one of the most feared sides in England and Europe. ROSS HALLS went to meet ‘Big Al’.

Ipswich Town goalkeeper Bartosz Bialkowski came on as a half-time substitute as he made his international debut for Poland this evening.

While much of the focus at Ipswich Town is on resolving matters off the pitch between now and the end of the season, on the field the Blues are battling to finish above local rivals Norwich.

Jonas Knudsen was an unused substitute as Denmark beat Panama 1-0 in Copenhagen last night.

Stuart Watson, Andy Warren and Mike Bacon are joined by Phil Ham of TWTD to discuss the state of Ipswich Town heading into the final weeks of the season.

Being released by his beloved Ipswich Town as a 16-year-old has turned out to be the best thing that could have happened to new England goalkeeper Nick Pope

Making his England debut and earning a place at the World Cup was a long way from Nick Pope’s mind as the teenager hauled himself out of bed for his 4am milk rounds in Soham.

Young Ipswich Town striker Ben Morris is hungry for more after making his Championship debut recently.

The future of Mick McCarthy and the direction of Ipswich Town cast a shadow over the final weeks of the season, but there are still plenty of issues to be sorted at Portman Road. ANDY WARREN takes a look
