FABIAN Wilnis bounced back after his three-match suspension to score the “Portman Road Goal of the Season” yesterday afternoon.
The 37-year-old Dutch defender notched the winner with a spectacular overhead kick when Ipswich played Spurs in a behind-closed-doors friendly yesterday afternoon.
The Blues, who fielded a side made up of players all with first team experience, ended 3-2 winners after a lively end-to-end contest.
Wilnis took off with his back to goal at the far post to convert an 80th minute right wing corner with a high scissor-kick that almost ripped the net.
Danny Haynes, who will also feature in Town's squad for the Championship visit to Hull City on Saturday, also impressed after suspension and headed the first goal from a probing Billy Clarke cross.

Liam Trotter regained the lead in the second half from close range following a tricky right wing run by Jaime Peters after Andy Barcham had equalised for a young Spurs side managed by development coach Clive Allen.
Gangly Czech striker Tomas Pekhart made it 2-2 after a Spurs move down the right.
