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Huws also played for the Blues’ young side against Aston Villa on Monday night, having withdrawn from international duty with Wales as he continues to fight for a first team return.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

Episode One: Stuart Watson and Andy Warren discuss Ipswich Town’s draw at Hull City, hear from Mick McCarthy and Jordan Spence and make the first pitches for football’s Room 101.

Jordan Spence has been telling his Ipswich Town team-mates just how much of a threat he is in front of goal - and the defender is delighted to be proving his point on the field.

Suffolk FA Women’s Cup Second Round

Ipswich Athletic 0

Ipswich Town Ladies Development side 14

Ipswich Town Ladies Development side progressed to the next round of the Suffolk FA Cup with a massive 14-0 thumping of Suffolk league side Ipswich Athletic, writes Liam Young.

Focus on the strengths, recognise the weaknesses and enjoy the ride.

“We might not be the best, but we keep going. It’s an endearing quality we have.”

Watch match highlights of Ipswich Town’s 2-2 draw at Hull City on Saturday.

A point at Hull City should not be seen as anything other than a good result ordinarily and the fact that we gained that point with a late equaliser certainly felt better than a loss. But were they not there for the taking on the day?

It was certainly an eventful day for David McGoldrick.

Jordan Spence believes his late leveller at Hull shows the character of the Ipswich Town squad.
