The newly promoted students had lost their opening game 5-2 but had scored two early goals and were actually leading at half time so Ipswich were determined not to fall into the same trap.

Starting brightly, the Suffolk side scored three times in the first 16 minutes with all three goals coming from short corners.

The first two were superbly executed by stand-in midfielder Keir Dixon, however Dixon, who scored 22 goals for Ipswich last season, was making his first of what will be very few appearances this year due to work commitments.

Fellow Welshman Mark Wheelhouse then stepped up to put away his first of the season with similar aplomb.

Cambridge came out fighting in the second half, scoring twice in the first ten minutes.

The Suffolk side dug in deep from then on and looked the more likely to score at the end.

The two start win made it Ipswich's best ever start to a national league season.
