JAIME Peters, the forgotten man at Portman Road, caught they eye in the latter stages of last night's 2-1 defeat for Ipswich Town in their reserve league game at Marlow.

The 21-year-old Canadian international wide player has not featured in the Town first team this season having made 46 appearances in the previous two years.

He is under contract with the Blues until June 2010 and has now recovered from injury.

Another player to make a mark as Chris Kimomya's side lost further ground at the top of the table was 15-year-old Colchester-based schoolboy Connor Wickham who netted his first goal for the reserves.

It was a young Town second string who went behind when Matt Richards, a loanee from Derby County, scored after 20 minutes.
