In this week’s Town nostalgia, we take a look back to October 2016, when Ipswich ended their five-game goalless, winless run with a 2-0 win over Burton Albion in the first competitive fixture between the two sides at Portman Road.
Ipswich Town returned to winning ways as Luke Chambers and Freddie Sears scored in each half to end a five-game goal drought with a 2-0 win over Burton Albion in the first competitive fixture between the two sides at Portman Road.
Town went ahead and ended their barren run with their first chance of the match on the quarter hour when Sears whipped over a cross from the left, which the diving Chambers met at the far post to head home Town’s first goal in eight hours and 22 minutes of football.
Having made the first goal, Sears then scored the second on the 88th minute, latching on to Tom Lawrence’s pinpoint pass to score for the first time in 38 matches.
Town saw out five minutes of added on time to claim their first win since the 1-0 win at Derby in September and their fifth clean sheet in seven matches.
