Ipswich Town Under 23s fought back from a goal down to win 2-1 at Charlton Athletic this afternoon.

Kieron Dyer's side, which featured fringe first-teamers Dai Cornell, Tristan Nydam - continuing his return from a long-term injury - Armando Dobra and Oli Hawkins, fell behind early as Mason Burstow put the Addicks up after just nine minutes.

But Town came back into the game after the break, livewire Dobra - fresh from playing for the first team as a sub at Wigan on Saturday - levelling ten minutes into the second stanza, drilling a shot home. 

And Levi Andoh then fired the Blues ahead 15 minutes later, doing superbly well to divert the ball into the bottom corner from close range after the home side failed to clear their lines.

It was a goal which proved enough to secure the points for Dyer's men,  who remain second in the PDL2 South table.

The U23s are next in action when they host Bristol City at Playford Road on April 6.

Town starting XI: Cornell, Crowe, Andoh, Armin, Clements, Alexander, Nydam, Trialist, Dobra, Crane, Hawkins
