Ipswich came back from a half time deficit to thrash Harpenden.

Despite dominating large parts of the opening period, Ipswich's movement was slack and their passing very average as they came to terms with a very bouncy pitch.

In fact, the Suffolk side were lucky to just be 1-0 down at the break as a seemingly good goal for Harpenden was not awarded.

The only Ipswich player to come out with any credit from the first half was the once again superb Underwood who really seems to be enjoying a left-back spell.

A strong team talk and a few changes from the bench saw Ipswich come out a completely different team after the break and within three minutes of the restart a clever passing move between Miller, Smith and Cook won a short corner, which Dixon power flicked home.

Straight from the restart, Martin cleverly flicked over a stranded goalkeeper.

Five minutes after that another short corner was won and with the defence all rushing out to avoid the Dixon flick it was 3-1.

Miller then produced a devastating 15 minute spell that destroyed the opposition.

With Palmer and Calver starting the majority of the moves from the back, and controlling Reed in front of them, Harpenden could not contain a superb second half performance.

Next week Ipswich will miss Underwood, who is on East duty, and Martin who seems to be enjoying his role alongside the experienced Cook.
