Ipswich pushed back to start the game and with 30 seconds gone were 1-0 down. This set the tone for the rest of the first half and, with forwards starved of service from a lacklustre midfield performance, the Suffolk side found themselves 4-0 down at the break.

A tactical switch in the second half patched up Ipswich's slightly demoralised defence, with Driver dropping back into midfield to try and sure things up.

Ipswich face St. Albans next week in another tough game but will welcome back Simon Miller, Palmer and captain Reed.
