Carlton Park were quick on the break, realising they had a golden opportunity to stop Ipswich's unbeaten record. However, the Ipswich defence were solid as ever and did not let the extra man break them down. Both Carlton Park's goals came from short corners and not open play, which is testament to the team for putting up such a strong fight.

At 1-1 Ipswich would have settled for the draw, but with decisions going against them (a shot seemingly stopped on the line by a foot and hitting the post), the game just wasn't going their way.
