Yesterday Ipswich Town took on Reading at Portman Road. In the first of a new nostalgia series, we take a look back to the highest scoring game between the two teams in a clash back in 1996.
The Division One match, at Portman Road on August 24, would end 5-2 to the Blues.
The game got off to a flying start with Ipswich taking the lead in the 13th minute with a goal from Tony Vaughan.
That lead was soon cancelled out as Reading’s Lee Nogan got one back for the visitors in the 28th minute.
But the game turned on the brink of half-time as the Royals’ Bobby Mikhailov was sent off, resulting in a penalty for Town, which Steve Sedgley netted.
Reading may have been a man down, but they equalised in the 62nd minute with a goal from Barry Hunter.
Town took over from there though, with Vaughan adding his second seven minutes later, before Mauricio Taricco added a fourth and James Scowcroft finished the scoring late on.
