Ipswich spent the first ten minutes in their own half, lulling the opposition into a false sense of security.

It worked a treat as Howard Walker athletically cleared the ball off the line and pinged it out to debutant Ollie Fox to start Ipswich's first attack of the game, which led to Mays slotting home after some silky passing.

Minutes later George Payne at right back set up another move which ripped open the sluggish IES defence for Barker to tap in.

At this point Ipswich were dominant but proceeded to over-elaborate the short corner routine for the rest of the half, including one where Fox flicked the ball up beautifully for Le Vay to slot home with a left-footed volley. Unfortunately the goal was disallowed and IES scrambled the ball up the field and somehow managed to score past an otherwise solid defence.

The second half was goalless, with neither side really threatening the others keeper, although it was generally controlled by the omnipresent Ben Hills in midfield, leading to another good win but doing little for Ipswich's low goal difference.
