Ipswich Town remained top of the League One table with a 2-0 home win over Accrington Stanley yesterday - and you can watch the highlights of the game here...

The Blues struggled in the first half as the sides went in locked at 0-0 at the break, but a much improved second stanza showing from the Blues saw them claim all three points.

Gwion Edwards opened the scoring - his fifth goal in just six games so far – after a nice pass from Freddie Sears, before Sears himself made sure of the points with a tidy dinked finish over the onrushing Stanley keeper.

Edwards is now the league’s leading scorer alone, and Town remain a point clear of Hull at the summit, with five wins and a draw from their opening six games.
