Ipswich Town's U23s lost 2-1 to 10-man Bristol City in a behind-closed-doors game at Playford Road this afternoon.
Robins keeper Harvey Wiles-Richards was dismissed for bringing down striker Kayden Jackson outside the box in the 28th minute.
A Blues side, which also contained first teamers Toto Nsiala and Louie Barry, soon went behind to a Louis Britton penalty though.
Sam Bell made it 2-0 in the 75th minute, rendering Matt Ward's late header a mere consolation for Kieron Dyer's men.
Tete Yengi - a 6ft 5in forward who Town have signed from Australian side Newcastle Jets - was among the substitutes.
U23s: Ridd, Alexander, Nsiala, Baggott, Clements, Healy, Humphreys, Chirewa, Siziba, Barry, Jackson. Subs: Cullum, Stewart, Yengi, Morris, Ward.
