Match highlights and all the major incidents as Ipswich slip to a 2-0 away defeat at Aston Villa.
Albert Adomah scored twice for the hosts as he profited from Ipswich errors to send his side cruising to victory, but not before Joe Garner had put the ball into the net only for the goal to be ruled out for a foul on the goalkeeper (0.04).
Villa striker Keinan Davis then got in behind Luke Chambers to test Bartosz Bialkowski (0.20) before the young striker then headed wide (0.50).
Then, the goal (0.56), as Garner’s good headed clearance falls to the feet of Whelan, whose shot is cleared up in the air by Chambers. Ireland international Whelan then headed the ball back into the box, allowing Adomah to find an acre of space to finish.
The game was up after the break, though, when a Robert Snodgrass through-ball (1.40) is misjudged by Dominic Iorfa, allowing Adomah through for an easy finish.
