JAY Emmanuel-Thomas scored twice as an Ipswich Town reserve side thrashed Tottenham 5-1 in a friendly at Spurs Lodge this afternoon.

Bilel Mohsni, Cormac Burke and Ronan Murray got the other goals against a Spurs side that included Scott Parker, who was playing his first game after an Achilles’ injury, and former Blues loanee Massimo Luongo.

Also in the Ipswich line-up were Scott Loach, Elliott Hewitt, Kelly Youga and Josh Carson.

Blues boss Mick McCarthy, who announced his intention to organise some reserves friendlies with the Under-21s without a game until the New Year, was among those watching the match in North London.

  • Nice one lads, and nice one Mick, getting the other lads some action and taking the time out to watch the match is good news, early days but this manager seems to be pulling all the right cords, long may it continue.

Ipswich Town boss Mick McCarthy believes winning football – and only winning football – will bring the fans back through the gates at Portman Road.

Ipswich and Huddersfield have met sporadically over the years, often only spending a few years in the same division before one of them moves up or down to pastures new.

Now 10 games into the season and Ipswich Town sit 13th in the table. Is that going to be the club’s level for the rest of the season?

Ipswich Town teenage right-back Josh Emmanuel is determined to show his parents their sacrifices were worth it by establishing himself as a first-team player.

Ipswich Town boss Mick McCarthy believes veteran midfielder Jonathan Douglas could be the answer to his team’s goal drought.

Ipswich Town boss Mick McCarthy highlighted the performances of Josh Emmanuel, Jonas Knudsen and Tom Lawrence as positives after tonight’s goalless home draw with high-flying Brighton.

Ipswich Town couldn’t capitalise on Brighton finishing the game with 10 men as they played out a second successive goalless draw at Portman Road in front of their lowest league attendance in almost four years.

Ipswich Town have an opportunity to quickly bounce back from a 1-0 defeat to Leeds as they host Brighton and Hove Albion at Portman Road tonight.

Ipswich Town’s next home game takes place tonight – but how well do you know the opposition?

Ipswich Town captain Luke Chambers says the team has got to start trying to entertain the fans more ahead of tonight’s Championship clash with Brighton at Portman Road (7.45pm ko).
