Action from Ipswich Town’s 2-0 defeat to Fulham

So it wasn’t to be today.
It was almost a step too far against a classy Fulham side that should be challenging for automatic promotion this season.
The Blues didn’t help themselves, looking sluggish at times, and afforded Ryan Sessegnon and Sheyi Ojo the freedom of their particular flanks during the first half, the Cottagers mounting attack after attack.
The game was killed off as a contest after Rui Fonte’s goal, Fulham’s second, six minutes after the break, the visitors content to pass the ball round with arrogance at times, Kevin McDonald, Stephan Johansen and the mercurial Tom Cairney bossing proceedings.
Still, it’s been a good month for Town, and few fans would have predicted they would have taken 12 points from a possible 15 in the first month of the season.

The international break is upon them now and that should give a number of Town’s walking wounded a chance to get fit, although the news that Emyr Huws is likely to need an operation on his Achilles is a big blow.
