Ipswich Town came from behind to defeat Barnsley, 2-1, at Oakwell on Saturday afternoon. CHRIS BRAMMER gives his verdict on the Town players’ performances.

33. BARTOSZ BIALKOWSKI - 9

Super Pole in goal made four crucial first-half saves to stop Barnsley wrapping the game up before the break. Two further saves in the second half helped provide the platform for a superb comeback win from the Blues.

2. DOMINIC IORFA - 7

Town’s best attacking outlet going forward in the first half, but over-worked defensively as Barnsley dominated the flanks and midfield areas. Benefited from a change to an orthodox 4-4-2 in the second half.

12. JORDAN SPENCE - 7

Got on with his work efficiently and without any fuss, despite not playing in his favoured position.

4. LUKE CHAMBERS - 7

Captain’s performance at centre-back, the experienced campaigner is relishing his role as leader, alongside two, less experienced centre-halves. Loves defending like strikers love scoring goals.

3. JONAS KNUDSEN - 7

Quickly becoming Town’s Mr Dependable. Solid performer and does the basics well as a centre-back when under pressure. Second assist in a week for McGoldrick’s goal.

30. MYLES KENLOCK - 5

Targeted by Barnsley in the first half and was given a tough time by experienced winger, Adam Hammill. Got forward well when he could but spent most of his time on the back foot.

8. COLE SKUSE - 7

Went about his work quietly and efficiently, alongside Downes and Nydam, for whom the game seemed to be one too many in a short space of time. Getting forward more this season too.

21. FLYNN DOWNES - 5

Failed to exert his influence on the game, unlike in the matches against Luton, Birmingham and during pre-season. Never stopped working and running for the team but it must be remembered he is only 18.

22. TRISTAN NYDAM - 5

Another youngster that struggled to get into the game after his heroics at Luton. Was put on set-piece duties, which shows Mick McCarthy’s confidence in the 17-year-old, but nothing really came off for him.

20. FREDDIE SEARS - 6

Offered Town an outlet down the right channel in the first half and combined well with Iorfa on a couple of occasions to win corners. Moved back into midfield in the second half.

14. JOE GARNER - 8

Tigerish display from Town’s new signing, who never gave Barnsley’s back-line a second’s peace. Also did his share of defending too, making a vital goalline clearance from George Moncur’s shot, in the first half.

SUBS

10. DAVID McGOLDRICK - 8

Perhaps a little unfortunate not to get the nod from the off, the striker took just eight minutes to level the scores with a composed finish. Lifts the team and the fans with his presence alone.

9. MARTYN WAGHORN - 8

Impressed, out of position on the right, as a second-half substitute and scored the second-half winner with a composed finish.

37. ADAM McDONNELL - 6

Kept things ticking over in the middle of the park after replacing the injured Downes.

A motorcycle rider was arrested for drug driving after being found with no driving licence, no MOT and no insurance.
