A penalty from Trevor Benjamin on 63 minutes wrapped up proceedings after Frenchman Lilian Nalis had given City a half-time lead and Dominic Pearmain doubled their advantage three minutes after the break.

Although Scott Mitchell skippered the side, Alun Armstrong was the only first-teamer with any real experience for Town – but he was being asked to do a bit too much without service.
Ipswich were not helped by losing Stuart Boardley after half an hour after a couple of knocks left him with double vision.
Owen Garvan went on as Town used three schoolboys on the night, with Darryl Knight and Billy Clarke getting half a game.
Reserve team boss Steve McCall said: "They worked their socks off but didn't have the pace or quality for this level of football. But it was great experience for them to play in such a wonderful stadium in front of a decent crowd and it is up to them now to work and get to that level."
Ipswich Town Res: Supple, Synott, Boardley (Garvan, 29) Mitchell, Sobers, Hogg, Flack, Patten (Beveridge, 70) Armstrong, Knights (Clarke, 54) and Craig. Subs not used: Peat and Atay.
