Chief football writer Stuart Watson looks back at Ipswich Town’s 1-1 draw at Hillsborough, which saw 16-year-old Andre Dozzell score on his debut.

The youngster equalled the achievement of his father Jason, who also scored on his Ipswich debut aged 16, as the Blues beat Coventry in 1984.

Dozzell junior came off the bench at half-time and, just 26 minutes later, headed home Liam Feeney’s cross to level after Fernando Forestieri had given Wednesday the lead.
