Ipswich Town were beaten 2-1 at Accrington Stanley this weekend - Warren Page captured the best of the action.

Town took the lead just before the break when Macauley Bonne continued his scoring streak as he slotted home from Bersant Celina's pass, with the striker netting his eighth goal of the season.

But, as they have so often this season, the Blues let the lead slip as Colby Bishop equalised just a few minutes after the interval.

The game was a scrappy one, with Stanley looking the more likely to go and win it. And they did exactly that as Harry Pell fired home with a little over 10 minutes remaining to condemn the Blues to yet another loss at the Wham Stadium.

You can see the best of the action below.
