Danny Rowe produced a stunning volleyed finish at he end of a 16-pass move to set Ipswich Town on their way to a 2-0 win against Birmingham City in an Under-23 game at Portman Road last night.

Rowe then produced the assist as Kai Brown converted a low cross late on to seal victory and extend an unbeaten start to the campaign for Gerard Nash’s men.

Barry Cotter, Myles Kenlock, Flynn Downes, Andre Dozzell and Jordan Roberts – all players with first team experience – started the match, though Downes limped off with a muscle injury five minutes before the break.

Winger Rowe has been restricted to just three starts and six substitute appearances for the Blues’ first team since arriving from National League side Macclesfield Town for a £100k fee in January 2017.

The 26-year-old, who new boss Paul Hurst admired during his time as Grimsby Town boss, spent the second half of last season on loan at League Two side Lincoln City before suffering an ankle injury in April that required surgery.

He stepped off the bench in Town’s Carabao Cup exit at Exeter City last month and then scored a hat-trick as the U23s thrashed Hull City 8-0 at Portman Road.

Town U23s: Wright; Cotter, Marshall, Ndaba, Kenlock; Rowe, Downes (McGavin 40), Dozzell, McLoughlin; Lankester (K Brown 78), Roberts. Unused: Ware, Z Brown, Clements.

Paul Hurst doesn’t expect midfielder Teddy Bishop to be out for too long despite picking up a hamstring injury but Jon Walters is now a doubt for Saturday’s game with Bolton.
