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.
